Official: Chelsea appoints Rafa Benítez interim manager

Chelsea have appointed former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez as interim manager until the end of the season.

Previous manager Roberto Di Matteo was sacked on Wednesday following the 3-0 Champions League defeat by Juventus.

Di Matteo’s tenure at Stamford Bridge ended up being extremely brief. He took over the team in early March of last season after Andre Villas Boas was fired.

Benitez's short-term appointment could pave the way for owner Roman Abramovich to make a summer approach for ex-Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola.

Statement from Chelsea FC
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 becomes the Blues' ninth manager since Abramovich took over in 2003 and is due to meet the players at the training ground in Cobham tomorrow.

Do you think firing the managers is the best solution?,seriously the blues what's the plan?.......
