Rafa Benitez calls on Chelsea to unite
A sector of the Chelsea fans warned the coach to expect an unpleasant evening at the home game against West Brom, where the atmosphere is expected to be remarkably hostile, The Sun says.
The club is planning to have extra stewards surrounding the technical area and the players’ tunnel, but the interim boss keeps encouraging everyone to row in the same direction.
“We have 11 games to play. If we stick together, it will be easier and we can get more points. I would like to see a fantastic atmosphere supporting the team, and I will be really pleased with that”.
Asked whether he thinks he could be fired after his controversial words after the FA Cup game against Middlesborough, Benitez mantained: “No. They know how we work and what we are trying to do”.
“My relationship with the people at the club is really good. My relationship with club owner Roman Abramovich is very good”, he said.
And he added: “When I meet with him we talk about football, we talk like normal people and share our passion for football.”
