Rafa Benitez – ‘I’m trying to do my best’

Rafa Benitez, ChelseaChelsea interim boss Rafa Benitez believes he’s done a good job despite failing to win over the fans in his time at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues remain firmly in with a chance of ending the season on a high with a top-four finish in sight and the chance of some silverware to their name as they prepare for a Europa League semi-final first-leg with Basel on Thursday.

The 53-year-old, who took over in strange circumstances in the wake of Roberto Di Matteo’s surprise sacking, has struggled to win over the support of the fans who are still unhappy with his appointment.

The former Liverpool and Inter boss believes he has a lot to be proud of during his short spell with the club, though, and if they can end the term in good form then he will have more opportunities when looking for a new job in the summer.

“I have a contract until the end of the season and then we assume that’s it. I have to do my job,” Benitez said.

“If you are asking me how I will be remembered – professional, working hard and trying to do my best.

“People can see what I have achieved in the past. We are talking two years ago, not 20 years ago.”
