Rafa - Let Me Stay!
So the headline screams out at me from the back page of one of the nations` leading Sunday red-tops.
Apparently, after agreeing to guide the good ship Chelsea on an interim basis, Rafa the Gaffer now wants the job on a full-time basis.
Speaking ahead of the FA Cup 4thround clash with Brentford, Rafa is quoted as having remarked,
"I want to be at a top side and Chelsea is a top side with great potential. It is a great opportunity."
"I`ve had private conversations with the people in charge and the owner."
"They know my ideas, they listen to me, we talk and they have to decide."
"I came in mid-season, so I could not change too much and I had to work with the squad I had."
"I gave my opinions, we signed a striker and we`re trying to do what is best for the team and the club."
"This is a top side and if they continue to do things the right way they`ll challenge for trophies."
But, the huge question remains - will it be with Rafa at the helm?
Your thoughts please!
