Rafa Benitez says it is unlikely he will be replacing David Moyes as Everton boss.

The Spaniard will leave his role as interim Chelsea manager, with Jose Mourinho expected to replace him at Stamford Bridge.

"I don't think so. I have a lot of respect for Everton and I think that they're doing really well," he said.

"It's not easy. There are not too many options.

"I think David Moyes has done a good job. He has been for years keeping the team at the top, in the top eight, top six, top five.

"We were rivals for a while and we will be rivals on Sunday. After this game I wish him all the best.

"After Ferguson and United everyone will have trouble to do the same as he did. It's impossible.

"The support of Ferguson I think will be key for him."
