Well, maybe he got slated because of any of this:
Rafa Benitez Chelsea manager: I'd never take Stamford Bridge job | Mail Online

Shows off his character.

Shows off his character? This coming from a supporter of the club who had the biggest bully in English football as a manager for 26 years?

Of course he would say what he said. He was manager of Liverpool and about to take on Chelsea in the CL semi-final. He then goes to Chelsea and does a great job. At the same time, he has the media, fans and club on his back.

The fact is, he is a top class manager and a master of European football.

Character? You having a laugh?

Is that your argument Pete? Okay, we will leave it there. Goodnight lads and congrats to Chelsea. Any Chelsea fans on here, have a good night.

What a finish in the second half. Torres with a great goal, Lampard bangs the post, a barely offside no goal for Benfica and Chelsea become the first English team to win all 3 major European trophies and have been the only English team to make any kind of serious noise in Europe the last 2 seasons.

As a Chelsea fan, I don't mind Rafa. His track record over the years is impressive and I think he did a pretty good job this season.

I'm a Chelsea fan, I don't want Benitez in charge, things quietened down a bit as soon as he confirmed he was only an 'interim' manager - I wish him no ills and even thank him for the effort he has put in to the club in the last 6 months but I won't forget his comments in the past, I pray the Mourinho rumours are true and that he comes 'home' next season.

I was more angry at the fact that Roman decided to fire yet another manager. Prior to him coming to Chelsea I didn't care too much for him, namely because he managed a rival at Liverpool. His resume speaks for its self and he has shown at multiple clubs he can manage and manage well. So I always respected what he had done at other clubs.

I know several Chelsea fans who were beyond pissed and would go on an on about how bad he is and could not get over his comments about the club previously. I just focused on supporting the club and cheering the boys on.
