What does Rafael Benitez make of the state of Liverpool since he left the club at the end of last season?

In the second part of Guillem Balague's exclusive interview with the former Reds boss, which you can only see in full here on skysports.com, he discusses the current state of things at Anfield.

He explains why things went wrong in the final months of his reign and reflects on the impact of subsequent managers Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish. He also shares his hopes for the future.

The second part of the interview includes:

NOT IN GOOD COMPANY - He describes his frustration as Liverpool became more of a company than a football club under Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

HODGSON'S CHOICE - He denies he left Roy Hodgson a poor squad of players and says his replacement made mistakes during his spell in charge.

KING KENNY - He praises the job done by the current Liverpool manager, but says he would love to return to the job one day.

RIVAL REALITY - He says he was never approached about the Blackburn Rovers job and suggests he would never take over at one of Liverpool's main rivals.

MEDIA FOCUS - He explains how some elements of the media misrepresented him during his six years in charge at Anfield.
