No pressure, insists Benitez
Interim Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez yesterday denied feeling any added pressure going into the Club World Cup in Japan, despite his side exiting the Champions League at the first hurdle last week
Chelsea, appearing in the event for the first time, will take on Mexico’s Monterrey in the semi-finals at Yokohama International Stadium on Thursday.
Chelsea come into the tourney days after becoming the first Champions League holders to fail to progress past the group stage. “I don’t have any problem in terms of pressure. I have some experience and I’d like to enjoy every minute I am here and do my best and try to win,” said Benitez, who won this tourney as Inter Milan coach two years ago.
