Benitez: Roman's rule easier than Reds'

Published Add your comment

Rafael Benitez has declared working for Roman Abramovich would be "easier" than for George Gillett and Tom Hicks, despite admitting he had never even spoken to the Chelsea owner.

Benitez had no fears about putting himself in the crosshairs of football's most demanding boss or that he had only been appointed manager on an interim basis. But it was the revelation of him having had no contact whatsoever with Abramovich that raised the most eyebrows.

"I will meet him today," Benitez said of Abramovich after being unveiled as the Russian's ninth manager in just over eight years. "The main thing is that I have spoken to Michael Emanalo, the technical director, and he's my link. I like to speak about football with him. That's my priority."
