Brentford striker Forshaw big fan of Chelsea boss Benitez

Brentford striker Adam Forshaw admits he's a big fan of Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez.

Forshaw – who turned down a two-year contract at Everton to join the Bees – is a fan of Liverpool, ­Fernando Torres and Rafa Benitez.

He now has a chance to heap ­misery on the pair, and to make the FA Cup fourth-round ­replay at Stamford Bridge even tastier he will face Frank Lampard – one of the players he modelled himself on.

He said: “Frank was one of my heroes. He and Stevie Gerrard were the stand-out players for me.

"It’s the same with Torres. He was brilliant when I watched Liverpool.

"I don’t know what it would mean for Benitez if we won. I think he’s under a bit of pressure, but I still hope we get the win.”
