Benitez plans to bow out in style

5May 2013

England - Premier League


Rafa Benitez hopes he can end his spell in charge of Chelsea with a trophy after guiding the Blues to the Europa League final.


Interim boss Benitez has already confirmed that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season and is desperate to secure some silverware following defeats for the club in the Club World Cup final, Community Shield and Super Cup. Chelsea face Benfica in Amsterdam on 15th May in the Europa League final after beating FC Basel 5-2 on aggregate while the Portuguese side edged past Fenerbahce in the other semi-final. "We have one more opportunity to win a big title," said Benitez. "We have lost three finals this season. It will be tough because Benfica are a very, very dangerous team and hard to play against, but at least we are there. With the commitment and the quality, we'll have a chance for sure." Chelsea, 4/6 with bet365 to win the Europa League, still have eyes on a top-four finish in the Premier League and face champions Manchester United this weekend. Fernando Torres is available at 7/1 to open the scoring at Old Trafford.
