Chelsea's Rafa Benitez On Hot Seat; Mourinho 'Lined Up' To Return This Summer
Published March 1, 2013
SPECIAL ARRIVAL: Also in London, Johnson & Olley reported Jose Mourinho is being "lined up to make a dramatic return to Chelsea in the summer, while Avram Grant has emerged as a serious contender to oversee the rest of Chelsea's season following Rafael Benitez's outburst." While the current interim manager will be in charge for Saturday's match against West Brom, "it could be the Spaniard's last game at the helm at Stamford Bridge." Should Benitez be let go after this weekend's game, he would become "the third manager in a row" to be fired by Abramovich following a fixture against the Baggies (INDEPENDENT, 2/28).
