Chelsea Football Club can confirm Rafael Benitez has been appointed interim first-team manager until the end of the season.
The owner and the Board believe that in Benitez we have a manager with significant experience at the highest level of football, who can come in and immediately help deliver our objectives.
The 52-year-old Spaniard is due to meet the players at the training ground in Cobham tomorrow.
Come to Dortmund!
His time at Valencia was exceptional. The last time someone other than Real Madrid or Barcelona won La Liga. I'm trying to stay positive.
You'll be posting to yourself unless more of your fellow Chelsea fans join you there
Good luck today...
Rafa in charge.
I'm going to be sick.
As I said, he's being appointed as INTERIM manager. He's caretaker until we get Pep or whoever the next big shiny thing is next year. I absolutely hate this, but whatever.
I think the magnetic field has also shifted to point south. Other than that, business as usual.
im hope im wrong, but were not getting into the cl next season
Who's beating us to it? Spurs? Newcastle? Liverpool??? If we drop out of the CL finishing in the top 4 is almost assured.
At this point, everyone is an INTERIM manager. I hope all of them learn to limit their personal items to one tiny box.
Isn't every manager that comes to Chelsea?
Everton, Arsenal WBA, and as spurs go, its a looong season. I dont expect an arguer like you to yeild anyway, but just like you were wrong about benitez being our manager, you could be wrong about this too.
No - just the ones that weren't first choices or aren't very good. Since Carlo we haven't appointed a single manager I've been particularly excited about and one of whom had to be fired.
Just like we were going out of the competition before we played Napoli at home.
I'm already there.
WBA IN THE CL!? what on earth are you smoking and, more importantly, can i have some?
I wasn't wrong about Benitez being our manager because I never said he wasn't going to be. I said if he came in, he'd be a caretaker, and the club's press release called him an interim manager. But yeah, good one there!
And if you think Everton or WBA are beating us to 4th over a full season, you're insane. Hell, I even assumed for your benefit that a weak Arsenal side is going to beat us into 3rd.
