Spaniard says he is doing well at Stamford Bridge.
Interim Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has insisted he has done a great job at Stamford Bridge since replacing Roberto Di Matteo in November.
The appointment of the former Liverpool boss was treated with hostility from the Blues faithful and Benitez has faced jeers and abuse from Chelsea’s supporters throughout his tenure.
The Spaniard has maintained the club’s pursuit of Champions League football, while guiding the team to the semi-final of the Europa League, with the first leg against FC Basel in Switzerland on Thursday.
But Chelsea have suffered embarrassing defeats in the final of the Club World Cup and the semi-final of the League Cup under Benitez and the 53-year-old has spoken out against the club for giving him the title of ‘interim’ manager.
Even so, the former Inter Milan and Valencia boss insists he has done a great job in west London.
“I have a contract until the end of the season and then we assume that’s it,” Benitez is quoted as saying in The Sun.
“I have to do my job. 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.
“If you are at a top side, everyone can see you.
“I’m managing a top side and in the circumstances we are doing a good job. We can achieve another title and finish in the top three.”
