West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke was happy with the reception he received from Chelsea fans in defeat yesterday.

The former full-back and coach received a rapturous reception back in SW6.

He said: "Chelsea fans are always good to me. I've been back many times.

"They remember me. I was 12 years here a player, and eight as a coach."

And asked about the furore surrounding the interim boss, Clarke said: "It's not about me being sorry for Benitez. I'm not at this club any more."
