Rafael Benitez is being coy over whether he will take part in Chelsea's lap of honour at the end of their final match of the season at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Spaniard is refusing to entertain the idea of a play-off, insisting they will go all out to win their final game to secure third place and avoid automatically for next season's Champions League.

And he is refusing to be drawn on his participation in a lap of honour when the squad enjoy the acclaim of the supporters following their Europa League final victory.

"I will try to concentrate on the game, enjoy, hopefully, the game and see what happens after," said Benitez, who said he had received messages of congratulations from fans through his website.

"What I can guarantee is that I will try to win the game. That is the main thing."
