"I'm going to London on Monday and at the end of the week I will be the manager of Chelsea," he said.

"I feel the people there love me and in life you have to look for that.

"Life is beautiful and short and you must look for what you think is best for you."

Friedel: Liverpool won't want to get rid of best player

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Friedel has said he believes Suarez will remain at the club because of his talent and price tag:

Liverpool won't want to get rid of their best player ...

The owners will not be happy with what they're seeing but they're businessmen and they're not going to want to just get rid of £22million of investment.

They will try and work with him. He's an outstanding footballer but someone has got to try and get hold of him.

In addition to considering the action on the pitch on Wednesday evening, Benitez expressed his wish for the fans to unite in creating a positive atmosphere for the team to play in at our games.

'It will be much better for everyone to have a good atmosphere and to back the players,' he said.
