London: Interim Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez has claimed the players at the club are hundred percent behind him despite a heated bust-up with captain John Terry.

The former Liverpool manager insists he does not fear being knifed in the back by his players, the Sun reports. Benitez confirmed reports of a training ground row with Blues veteran Terry following Sunday`s 2-0 loss at Manchester City.

Benitez said it was a very brief exchange of ideas and that was it, adding it was a meeting between players and technical staff to exchange opinions and disappointment is normal after a defeat.

The Spaniard added he could guarantee the players are behind their ideas and believe 100 per cent in what they are trying to do.
