Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benítez wins reprieve as hierarchy decide to wait until the end of the season to act
Chelsea intend to allow Rafael Benítez to stay as the club’s interim manager until the end of the season.
A 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday lifted Chelsea back into third place in the Premier League table and helped earn a reprieve.
Málaga coach Manuel Pellegrini and Jose Mourinho are the two managers being most closely considered by Chelsea to become the next permanent manager. Chelsea are also still considering Everton’s David Moyes but there is a growing acceptance that Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp is determined to remain in Germany.
