Published Add your comment

Rafael Benitez has told Chelsea fans he and they want the same things after arriving in London following his controversial appointment as interim manager.

Benitez began the challenge of winning round his new club's players and supporters - something that could be helped by the addition of a former Blues star to his coaching staff. Boudewijn Zenden has become Benitez's assistant, according to the Dutchman's father and agent - although the Spaniard could still face an uphill battle with supporters for whom he has long been a hate figure.

Benitez told Sky Sports News: "You know, the fans they always want the same as the manager, to win games and to win titles."
