BREAKING NEWS - Benitez Confirmed As New Chelsea Boss

Rafael Benitez has been confirmed as Chelsea's new manager, after the club sacked Roberto Di Matteo following Tuesday's 3-0 Champions League defeat to Juventus.
The 52-year-old Spaniard takes charge of the European champions on an interim basis until the end of the current campaign after spending almost two years out of work following his dismissal at Inter Milan.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The owner and the Board believe that in Benitez we have a manager with significant experience at the highest level of football, who can come in and immediately help deliver our objectives."

Benitez will take charge of his second Premier League club after a successful six year spell at Liverpool between 2004 and 2010. His time on Merseyside led to success in Europe as he won the club's fifth European Cup in his second season. 

Roman Abramovich relieved Di Matteo of his duties on Wednesday morning despite the Italian former player guiding the club to their maiden Champions League trophy and a seventh FA Cup last season.

Benitez becomes the ninth Blues manager in nine years in the Abramovich era.
