Some Chelsea Fans Are Vowing to Boycott Games if Rafa Benitez Returns as Boss

Some Chelsea Fans Are Vowing to Boycott Games if Rafa Benitez Returns as Boss

Rafa Benitez is being linked with a sensational return to Chelsea as manager – but some of the club’s supporters don’t seem too thrilled about the potential appointment.

The Spaniard enjoyed a short successful spell in charge of the Blues as interim boss when Roberto Di Matteo was sacked during the 2012/13 season, and went on to lead the Londoners to the Europa League trophy.

Benitez is out-of-contract at Newcastle this summer, and current Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is being linked with a return to Serie A with Juventus, meaning a vacancy at Stamford Bridge could very soon be available.

That has led to various tabloids, including the Metro, claiming that Benitez could be in the frame for an unlikely second stint as Chelsea gaffer – but it seems there’s plenty of resistance from fans on social media:

Of course, much of the animosity towards Benitez comes from his spell in charge of Liverpool, but he left Anfield almost 10 years ago – is it time to move on?

What do you think?
