Benitez is capable of blocking out the noise and demanded his players continue to stick to the task ahead. He has received public backing from owner Farhad Moshiri and insists faith can be repaid with patience.
"When something is going wrong, it is really important to show character and stay calm," said Benitez. "That is what I am trying to do with my staff. We cannot complain about the effort of the players.
"We are really disappointed with the way things are going but you cannot become a bad team in six weeks. We were doing the right things at the beginning of the season, win games and what has happened? We have had injuries. I am certain we will improve in the second part of the season."
