Rafa Benitez: Three games without a win for interim Chelsea boss

The Spaniard has overseen goalless home draws with Manchester City and Fulham and a 3-1 defeat at West Ham after taking over from Roberto Di Matteo at Stamford Bridge.

When asked about his future after Saturday's Upton Park reverse, he said: "No. I am not 100 per cent. We didn't win today - that is the main thing.

"I would say it depends on the things that we can do on the pitch. So if we improve on the pitch, it will be easier for everyone."

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, whose side trailed 1-0 at half-time before a second-half fightback, believes Benitez needs to win over the Chelsea fans in order to succeed.

He said: "You can't manage a club if the fans are not behind you. It just won't happen. And the only way you get them on your side is by winning games.

"If you're winning the fans will always back you."

PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
