It's official, Rafa Benitez is taking over at Napoli

The interim one has found a permanent home

It's official

I'm just happy that the Rafa Benitez era is over, and that we can move forward with a manager that the vast majority of us actually like. Despite the fact that Rafa was certainly better during the second half of his Chelsea tenure than he was in the first, I still never particularly cared for the way he did things.

The job is done though, and while generally disappointing, it wasn't a complete disaster that resulted in the club returning to the only competition that we won this season. I guess there's always a bright side to look at...no? So long Rafa, have fun in Naples. Hopefully that's the last time I ever have to write your name*.

*Ironically, Graham refused to write this on principle
