Rafael Benitez takes over untill summer

Reunion: Fernando Torres with Rafa

Chelsea have confirmed that Rafael Benitez has taken the managerial role following the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo.

The former Liverpool boss has been appointed as the Blues’ interim manager until the end of the season as owner Roman Abramovich continues to try and lure ex-Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola to Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea Football Club can confirm Rafael Benitez has been appointed interim first-team manager until the end of the season,” read a club statement.

“The owner and the board believe that, in Benitez, we have a manager with significant experience at the highest level of football, who can come in and immediately help deliver our objectives.

“The 52-year-old Spaniard is due to meet the players at the training ground in Cobham tomorrow.

“The two-time UEFA Manager of the Year comes with outstanding pedigree.

“He began his managerial career in his homeland, most notably at Valencia where he built a reputation as one of Europe’s top coaches by winning the Spanish League twice and the UEFA Cup.

“He then spent six years at Liverpool and led them to their fifth European Cup and an FA Cup.”

Chelsea FC 360 would also like to wish him all the very best of luck for the endevours that lie ahead!
