In an extraordinary post match interview after watching his team put Middlesbrough out of the FA Cup,Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez has
* Said that the clubs made a mistake by calling him an ‘interim manager’
* Attacked Chelsea fans who sing songs like ‘Rafa Out; saying that they need to back the team and if they don’t they will be watching Europa League football next season
* Confirmed that he would be leaving at the end of the season leaving the manager’s job open to a new boss.
To be honest listening to the interview he gave to BBC Radio Five Live it sounded more like a resignation speech than anything else. This was man who was clearly fed up by the cards he had been given by both the club and the fans.
The interview comes on the back of ongoing rumours about splits in the Chelsea dressing room.
So will Benitez be manager of Chelsea football club tomorrow. I am beginning to think he might not.
