Chelsea fans display banners thanking Rafa Benitez (Photos and tweets)
Rafa Benitez has had a tough old time as manager of Chelsea FC.
Hired as an interim manager after the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo, Benitez has struggled to get the fans off his back.
After winning the Europa League and securing 3rd spot, it appears some Chelsea fans have had a change of heart.
Following eight months of abuse, Benitez has finally received a little bit of thanks from the Stamford Bridge faithful on his final day in charge.
Check out some of the banners from today’s Everton game below. Tweets regarding today’s banners are further below:
