Is Abramovich Ready To Sack Benitez?

Things are not going well for Chelsea ahead of their clash against Wigan. Although Benitez was brought in to improve The Blues record, the Spanish coach has not managed to live up to expectations. He has had some very poor weeks at Stamford Bridge and has had problems finding the best solutions for his team. A minority of fans say that Benitez should have been offered a long term contract and that a 6 month interim contract was not going to solve Chelsea’s problems. They were probably right as Benitez does not look fully engaged in making the most out of his appointment at The Bridge.

In recent statements the Spanish coach revealed that his relationship with the club and especially Roman Abramovich is not very close considering he hasn’t spoken with the Russian club owner for three weeks and counting. Most say that this is the result of Benitez’s failure to deliver a streak of good results and solid performances.

The most probable outcome of the Russian’s silent treatment is that Benitez and Chelsea will part ways. This is definitely a foreseeable outcome considering the Blues have only won three of their past 10 matches.

According to Benitez, the last conversation he had with the Russian club owner was after the match against Arsenal when Abramovich was quite happy with the way his team performed. That happened 20 days ago and since then Chelsea’s coach has been receiving feedback from other members of the staff but not directly from the Russian.

Benitez also says his future is not yet determined with the club and that the line will be drawn at the end of the season. He said that he takes each match at a time and does not think of what is to come as far as his future at Stamford Bridge goes. All his past discussions with Roman Abramovich have been about on-field football matters and on-field football matters alone.

Over the past few days most press outlets have issued questions regarding Benitez’s imminent departure, but the Spaniard has refused to respond. He has pushed all the attention onto the match against Wigan and has maintained a balanced, diplomatic attitude that sort of suggests that he will not be coaching Chelsea for much longer.
