Le Saux: Benitez winning fans over

Published Add your comment

Graeme Le Saux thinks Rafael Benitez may finally be able to win over the Chelsea fans who opposed his appointment if he can guide the Blues to Capital One Cup glory.

Benitez endured a torrid start to his reign as interim manager, with booing, abusive signs and heckling commonplace during his first few matches in charge. The Spaniard has turned things around of late, however, with Chelsea now seven points adrift of second-place Manchester City having played one game less.

Le Saux, who spent 12 years at Chelsea, thinks the animosity towards the former Liverpool boss has mellowed of late and he reckons leading Chelsea to the final of the Capital One Cup will also help matters. Speaking ahead of the first leg of the Blues semi-final against Swansea, Le Saux said: "The relationship between the fans and club is building again."
