Chelsea owner Abramovich ready to hand Benitez new contract

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to extend the contract of interim boss Rafa Benitez.The Sun says sources inside Stamford Bridge's corridors of power say the Spaniard is on course to become 'Rafa the Gaffer' full-time after some superb results.

Abramovich has been impressed with Blues' six wins in their last seven games, in which they hit 26 goals and reached the Capital One Cup semi-finals.

Benitez, 52, has even helped £50million flop Fernando Torres rediscover his golden touch with seven goals in seven games.
