Spaniard in defiant mood after a tough week at the Bridge.
Chelsea interim head coach Rafa Benitez has claimed that he has absolutely no regrets whatsoever about taking over from previous manager Roberto Di Matteo at Stamford Bridge.
The Spaniard has come under fire this week after criticising the West London club’s supporters for “wasting time doing banners or singing songs”.
However, the former Valencia, Liverpool and Inter Milan boss says that he does not regret taking on the job and that he is simply focussed on getting the Blues into next season’s Champions League by finishing this campaign in the top four of the top flight.
“No, It has been a great experience to have the opportunity to win four or five trophies,” Benitez told the BBC’s Football Focus.
“The best for my team is to have a very good atmosphere behind them, players feeling the support.
“Against Napoli they were running an extra mile. Feeling the support against Arsenal, they were running an extra mile. I was trying to explain that if we stick together it will be easier.
“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.”
