West Brom striker Long tells Chelsea fans: Benitez a great manager

West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long is a big fan of Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez.

Benitez is under huge pressure going into today's clash.

Long told Absolute Radio's Rock 'N' Roll Football: "I don't know too much about it to be honest. I suppose the players just want the team to win you know and they're not getting the trophies that they usually get every season I suppose. It's going to fire back on someone. He's a great manager you know, he's managed some of the top teams in the world and I'm sure it'll come good it's just a tough stage for them at the moment."
