Benitez praises Chelsea’s ‘great season’
London: Chelsea`s interim manager Rafael Benitez has said that his club has had a great season and added that it can be even better, following Chelsea’s win over Manchester United in a FA Cup quarter-final match. A spectacular goal by Chelsea’s Demba Ba fired the team into the last four in the FA Cup, earning them an April 14 Wembley semi-final against Manchester City.
According to Benitez, Chelsea is performing consistently well this year with a place in the FA Cup semi-finals and the quarter-finals of the Europa League, and can perform even better. Although Benitez said that the priority of the club is to finish in the top four, he added that as a top team, it is necessary for Chelsea to win every competition.
However, Benitez feared that the Blues’ bid for glory could be wrecked by injuries to Gary Cahill (knee) and Ashley Cole (hamstring) and said that the remaining players will have to manage the best they can.
