Benitez: Chelsea squad not strong enough

Published 24 Comments

Rafael Benitez has revealed he had told Roman Abramovich that Chelsea's squad was not strong enough to cope with the demands of this season.

Interim manager Benitez blamed the Blues' unprecedented series of major trophy failures on a lack of depth and variety in a playing pool that has also been riven by injury and suspension.

Confirming he had spoken to Chelsea's billionaire owner about transfer targets after Sunday's win over Arsenal, Benitez said: "We had a good conversation the other day but I have to concentrate on football and the game and tactics and all these things. That is my job."
