Rafa Benitez’s Chelsea career has started off rocky to say the least. After a poor start to his first three league games and, despite winning 6-1 against Nordsjælland, getting put out of the Champions League, it looks like it will be an uphill battle for Rafa. It has been said since he has started that he is a bad choice for the job, but why? Well maybe it’s because the fans would probably be happier with some bloke off the street who won the league on football manager than see him in charge, or because Roman Abramovich looks like he is just settling with this toy until he gets the really shiny one that he has been asking his parents to get him for christmas for months.

This article will take a look at the reasons why Rafa Benitez might not be the right man to lead Chelsea.

5. Rafa’s Resume

Although he has a Champions League title and an FA Cup with Liverpool under his belt, it seems like he might not be as qualified as he should be for such a tremendous job. It’s clear that Roman wants success all the time aas winning the Champions League and the FA Cup was not enough for the charismatic Roberto Di Matteo to keep his job. He had very little success with a good Inter team after only lasting roughly seven months in charge. He has a few impressive records such as the biggest Champions League victory (Liverpool 8-0 against Besiktas) and won 81 of his first 150 league games in charge at Liverpool, only Kenny Dalglish (87) won more. But it’s worrying that he has never won a league title, and to keep his job it looks like he’ll need to do more than just that.
