Rafa Benitez has questioned Jose Mourinho's suitability for the Real Madrid job after he revealed his "100 per cent" desire to manage the club.[LNB] Mourinho is widely expected to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the Bernebeu once Saturday's Champions League final is out of the way.[LNB]However, Liverpool boss Benitez - who has been repeatedly linked with the Real post himself in the past - is not sure about the seemingly impending appointment.[LNB]"I know Mourinho has dreamed a lot of coaching Real Madrid but I do not know if he is the right person to train Madrid," said the Spaniard.[LNB]"Pellegrini has done a great job and deserves great respect because he's still coach and it's not pleasant to hear talk about who's going to replace you."[LNB]Mourinho himself is keen on the job.[LNB]"My only options are Madrid or Inter," he told Marca.[LNB]"To get me to leave this club after two years of incredible work, only Real Madrid could achieve that. If I go, I will move with a clear conscience having changed the club.[LNB]"All I say is that if you are a coach or a great player to not play in a club like Madrid, leaves a hole in your career.[LNB]"I want to coach Real 100 per cent. If it is next year or later, I can't say."
