Chelsea fans have been giving their reactions to interim manager Rafael Benitez's outburst on Twitter:
Chelsea fans didn't give him a chance? What did u expect? It was made clear he wasn't wanted even before he got employed. #CFC
As much as I want Rafa gone, this is getting out of control. He said fans should back the team, or accept results can't improve. #CFC
On a more positive note: whoever the next Chelsea manager is, will benefit massively from not being Benitez.
