Rafa Benitez is the favourite for the Chelsea job so here’s a video recap of what the fans think of the Spaniard

Roberto Di Matteo is out, but will Rafa Benitez be in?

The rumour mill is spinning furiously this Wednesday that Chelsea, after sacking RDM less than six months after he completed the FA Cup and Champions League double, are about to appoint ex-Liverpool and Valencia gaffer Rafa Benitez as their new man in the dugout.

Putting to one side any serious discussion of whether Benitez really is the right man for the job at Stamford Bridge, it’s interesting to note how Chelsea fans have reacted in the past to suggestions that Benitez could fill the Chelsea hotseat.

Back at the start of the year when Andre Villas-Boas was sacked from the Pensioners top job, Benitez was also heavily linked to the west London vacancy by numerous media outlets.

For their part though, Chelsea fans were largely anti any Benitez appointment, as can be seen in the video below in which a throng of Blues’ supporters happily sung nasty songs about the Spaniard.

Below the fold are a handful of the most interesting Tweets on the possible Benitez-Chelsea union.
