Have you ever heard of Rafa Benitez before or seen one of his teams play? He did great work with Valencia, including a uefa cup (rip) trophy, before several good years at liverpool where he won the champions league and then brought Torres to England.
1. Chelsea fans hate him.
2. He is a defensive minded head coach coming to manage an owner that wants to attack and has spent a shite ton of cash recently in order to do so.
3. He doesn't get along with the higher ups anywhere he's been. How in the hell is that going to work with the most demanding owner in the world?
4. Sure he's had success and won an FA and CL cup with an English team. However, we just fired a manager who did that in 4 months on the job. So obviously it's about more than that.
For me, it's got disaster written all over it.
