Job Well Done By Benitez

On his way out the door, Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez feels he has done a god job as the Blues interim manager irrespective of what the fans think.

Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday saw the London-based club finish third on the English Premiership table and will appear in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League once again next season.

Along with the team's Europa League triumph in midweek, it represents a job well done by the man who has experienced such resistance to his management since taking over in November.

“I felt the staff have done a really good job. When I say these things it's not because I have to say it, it's true,” said Benitez after the game.

“We don't have too many injuries, we don't have too many problems and we've finished where we wanted to finish so it's been quite good for everyone.”

Asked if he had won the fans around, Benitez added: “Some of them, I don't think you can convince everybody. But the majority of them were sending out positive messages and that is good for us.

“But it is about the players and the fans. It is most important for them.”
