Rafael Benitez is confident of winning over those Chelsea fans unhappy with his appointment as interim manager.

The former Liverpool boss was on Wednesday handed a contract until the end of the season after the unceremonious sacking of Roberto Di Matteo. The 52-year-old Benitez had previously said he would never take the Chelsea job in respect to former club Liverpool and had made digs at the west Londoners' fans.

Some sections of the Stamford Bridge faithful have not forgotten those remarks but Benitez has pledged to win over the naysayers. "I like to do things in the right way for the fans," he said. "They will be good for me."
