Benitez unconcerned about working with Chelsea owner Abramovich

Rafael Benitez holds no fear over working with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich after being confirmed as the replacement for Roberto Di Matteo, the Daily Mirror has reported.

The former Liverpool boss claimed that after attempting to manage the Anfield side under the employment of Tom Hicks and George Gillett, the controversial American pair who owned the club prior to John W. Henry and the Fenway Sports Group, getting along with Abramovich would be much more straightforward.


Abramovich has developed a reputation as an owner with a short fuse, hiring and firing managers almost at will - in the eight years the Russian has been in charge at Stamford Bridge, he has now gone through nine different managers, starting with Claudio Ranieri, the Italian in charge when Abramovich bought the club, to current incumbent Benitez. Di Matteo was the latest to receive his marching orders, sacked this week after a defeat to Juventus.


Benitez however insists that Abramovich’s status as the unquestioned decision-maker at Chelsea is a situation preferable to that when he left Liverpool, when the club’s owners, Hicks and Gillett, did not see eye-to-eye. He said: “ It was a difficult time at Liverpool,” said Benitez. “If you have two bosses who aren’t talking to each other, it’s difficult, even though we were still performing.


You go to the club and say ‘I want a striker’. One of them says, ‘yes’ and the other, ‘I don’t know. If the two of them don’t talk to each other, it causes problems. Here I have an owner, a technical director and good staff. So this will be easier.
