Rafa Benitez has revealed that Everton's hierarchy thought he had lost the passion to manage at the top, due to his time in China, but that was far from the case - with the Spaniard driven by the club's ambitious project.

Benitez had been out of work beforehand since January having left Chinese outfit Dalian Professional after 18 months in charge.

'This was a great opportunity,' he told the Liverpool Echo.

'They wanted to ask questions and then, this was something which surprised me, they did not know me as a professional.

'It was a project with potential and money, but the pandemic changed everything.

Despite spending just £1.7million in the summer transfer window on six players, Benitez is certainly getting value for money from main signings Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray.The pair have been a catalyst for Everton's impressive campaign so far with Townsend having provided five goals and three assists across nine games, while Gray has three goals and one assist over the same amount of matches.

Benitez will be hoping to continue Everton's fine form on Sunday when they host West Ham in the league.
