Rafael Benitez had no misgivings about taking charge of Chelsea - and everything that went with it - after being officially unveiled as their new manager.

Benitez was given a taste of what to expect in his seven months at Stamford Bridge when the Football Association announced the outcome of the Mark Clattenburg affair shortly before he was presented to the media. And it may not be just scandal the Spaniard has to contend with.

But the lure of silverware proved too good to resist for a man who had been out of football for almost two years. He said: "This year, they were asking me in a lot of interviews why I wasn't getting this job or that job. I said I was looking for the right opportunity, a top side to fight for trophies. If you get an opportunity like this, you have to take it."
