Rafa Not Worried About The Sack

Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez says he has had no contact with club owner Roman Abramovich in almost three weeks.

The London-club have won just one of their last five games in all competitions after originally enjoying a slight change in fortune following the Spaniard’s September appointment.

The poor run of form has prompted rumours that Benitez’s spell at the helm of the Blues could be brought to a premature end.

However, the former Liverpool and Inter boss insists that he is not worried about his position.

"I last spoke to him after the Arsenal game, 20 days ago. We were doing really well and he was really happy," Benitez told reporters.

"Since then, I've had conversations with people close to him but not directly. Do you know what he thinks? If you don't know, you can't say this or that will happen. Nobody knows.

"We have been talking with the people here. I was talking with him. We were talking about football. In terms of football everything is fine.

"My job is exactly the same. After winning, you can have better comments in the media in general, but that's part of football.

"I've been in football for 26 years as a manager, and all my life as a player too. If you win, it's fine. If not, people start talking. But I knew I was signing a contract for six or seven months."
