Revealed: Chelsea chairman Buck’s email which spells out Abramovich’s frustration with Benitez’s form
* Buck admits ‘Board and Roman are frustrated’ as fans at recent results
* Supporter posts email exchange on football forum website
* Fan blasts Benitez for ‘inept displays, inept substitutions and tactics’
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has admitted Roman Abramovich is ‘frustrated’ at the club’s form in an email reply to a fan who demanded the Chelsea board sack Rafa Benitez.
Benitez has been interim manager at Stamford Bridge since Roberto Di Matteo was axed in November but Blues fans have staged protests against the Spaniard’s appointment from the start.
Supporter Dan Silver, in an email to Buck which has been posted on the SweetFA football forums website, criticised Benitez for his views on Chelsea during his time as Liverpool boss and the job he has done since arriving in west London.
New York-born Buck, 66, wrote in his reply: ‘the Board and Roman are as frustrated as you are with some of the recent results.’
