...how does Abramovich expect Benitez will do any better than Roberto?
crazyturkey  +   664d ago
That doesn't matter to him he just likes to use his AXE.

wow...i suspect Benitez will just be a stop gap until roman forces pep to sign

anyway, best of luck to you Benitez, i hope roman lets you spend some cash in january

Pep is the one guy Abramovich wants more than anybody in the world. I assume if Pep says no at first, Abramovich will just keep increasing the money until he says yes.

We're in dire need of reinforcements in the back and at the front, and I'm assuming Roman noticed. I'm just wondering who Benitez has in mind for signing...
silvacrest  +   664d ago
yeah, i agree 100%

defense and forward positions are in desperate need of strengthening, im sure roman noticed this and if Benitez gets the cash needed in january i am interested to see what he does with it

Pep left Barca (his boyhood club) because of the back-room not giving him enough control and you expect him to go to Chelsea, lol.

Really guys, sometimes you need to use your brain.

@buddymagoo

Did I say anywhere in my comment that I expect Pep at Chelsea anytime soon? All I said is that Abramovich is going to throw some serious cash Pep's way.

Say what you will, but Abramovich won't stop that easily trying to get Pep. I'm guessing he's willing to go all out trying to get him. You clearly don't know how persuasive money can be, so we'll see what happens when it's all set and done.

It just doesn't make sense. Why hire another manager to fill a gap while you try and get another when you already had a manger that was filling a gap in RDM.

@buddymagoo

its clear roman thought he wasn't doing a good enough job, so even if benitezs is just another stop gap, he would rather try his luck with another manager while he tried to get pep

every team goes through a rough path but roman appears to have no patients

Pep is going to Milan. He has some great young talent, he'll be given full control to clean house and rebuild over the course of at least a few seasons, which is something he wants.
