Chelsea boss Benitez unimpressed by "ugly" Monterrey criticism

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez was unimpressed by criticism coming from Monterrey ahead of their Club World Cup clash.

Monterrey boss Victor Vucetich declared it was time to "dance with the ugliest".

It did not sound like a compliment but Benitez shrugged it off and said: "Everybody thinks that the Premier League is high-tempo all the time, and maybe he was concerned about this.

"I watched them against Ulsan and maybe because they were better, they could play the passing game they like to play."
