Rafa Benitez is buzzing about being back in football at Chelsea.

Despite the short-term nature of his contract, Benitez couldn't hide his excitement to be back in the big time.

He said: "After almost two years waiting for a top side, I had the opportunity and said, 'Yes'.

"I wasn't worried about the press.

"I analysed the squad and thought we could do things.

"Five opportunities to win trophies? Okay, carry on."
