Having survived something of a mini-scare, against Wigan, whereby our visitors looked as if they could get back into the game, Rafa Benitez heads off to Prague with something of a spring in his portly step.

In fact, it could be said that the Spaniard is feeling very comfortable in his surroundings and has taken time out to, put it mildly, champion his ambition to lead our club to glory above and beyond the terms of his interim appointment with Rafa remarking about the squad he inherited,

“I think this group of players has great potential.”

“That is more clear now in my head than it was when I arrived. Their possibility to grow is even bigger than I expected. The average age of the squad is fine. The potential is there. They are very good professionals and they are working hard and they are keen to learn – and for me that is the big advantage.”

“The reality is that we are a team in transition. The priority is to finish in the top three of four. After that, we have two more trophies that we can try with the FA Cup and Europa League.”

“My ambition to win trophies with Chelsea is stronger than ever. I have been a winner in three countries – and I want to win more.”

You`ve got to live the lad credit, he doesn`t give up does he!
