Leeds boss Warnock can understand Benitez grabbing Chelsea chance

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock doesn't blame Rafa Benitez for taking the Chelsea job.

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock doesn't blame Rafa Benitez for taking the Chelsea job.

Leeds face-off against Chelsea on Wednesday night in the quarter-final of the Capital One Cup at Elland Road.

"I don't blame Benitez for taking the job," Warnock said before saying tongue-in-cheek.

"He'd been out of work for quite some time, if it were me I would be there like a shot.

"I wish I could have had Chelsea now, yes, I should have got it this time! After Roberto left, he hasn't had an Englishman in the job, has he?"
