Fan barracking makes Benitez’s Chelsea job difficult, says Rosler

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has expressed sympathy for the position in which his Chelsea counterpart, Rafael Benitez, finds himself, after nearly knocking the Premier League side out of the FA Cup on Sunday, according to the Daily Mirror.

League One Brentford twice took the lead against their near neighbours, first through Marcello Trotta in the first-half, then after Oscar equalised early in the second period a Harry Forrester penalty put the Bees in front again. This time, though, Fernando Torres curled an effort from the edge of the penalty area to level for the Champions League holders.

Benitez named a strong starting XI - including captain John Terry in his first start since he was injured against Liverpool in November - but Chelsea were facing elimination until Torres scored in the 83rd minute.

The Spaniard also included England internationals Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill and Frank Lampard in his team, as well as bringing Juan Mata off the bench at half-time, while with 10 minutes to play January signing Demba Ba also joined the fray.

Former Manchester City striker Rosler said: “Obviously I think every manager, wherever he works, likes to work on a condition where he is supported by his own supporters. That makes his working environment much better. When we do our job I think we can make it again difficult.
