The Rafa Benitez Rant

Chelsea's 'interim' manager, Rafael Benitez, spoke out against fans and the hierarchy after The Blues' 2 - 0 victory over Middlesbrough last night.

Another press conference, another rant and another decorated manager showing the toll of the stress that managing a top Premier League side can put you under.

After Wenger's sensational scathing of the press and Roberto Mancini showing his annoyance at being questioned over his position, Rafael Benitez was the latest manager to show the cracks in his psyche.

Chelsea's 'interim' manager criticised the fans, the board and even the term 'interim'. It followed The Blues FA Cup win over Middlesbrough, in which Rafa was subjected to boos and anti-Benitez banners from The Blues faithful, once again.

In the press conference that followed, laid the blame for his unsuccessful stint with the board- stating that it was a mistake he was named 'interim'. He then warned fans that they were not helping the cause and should understand it is a transitional season for Chelsea.

Rafael also noted that he will be leaving when the season finishes and the 'interim' title was a shock to him.

Watch the starkly honest and passionate monologue below.
