Benitez won't walk away from Chelsea contract

Rafa Benitez says he won't walk away early from his Chelsea contract.

Benitez, who took over from the popular Roberto Di Matteo, admits that the only way to stop the Chelsea fans booing him is by giving them a winning team - and he insists he will never walk away from the challenge at Stamford Bridge.

He said: "When I signed with Chelsea I knew I was joining until the end of the season.

"If we are doing well then maybe it would be easier for people to be interested in me and maybe for the owner to say: 'Stay longer'. But all I am thinking about right now is the game against Arsenal.

"If we win, it will make things easier for everyone and I'm sure the supporters will be happy."
