Benitez enjoyed a six-year spell at Liverpool but is currently without a job following his dismissal as Real Madrid manager last month.
“I like the Premier League and it is a priority [to return there] because my family lives on the Wirral. But it is not easy because I have to watch every league just in case,” he said.
“But especially for my wife I’d like to return to management as she’s telling me to ‘go coaching’.
“After one month, it’s fine with the wife and the children but obviously I’d like to be on the pitch.”
