Rafa Benitez hints at Mourinho return during a press conference

Alex Livesey

First Mou dropped hints of a return after being knocked out of the Champions League, now Rafa Benitez seemingly confirmed them during his pre-match press conference. Hooray!

We saw some comments from Jose Mourinho earlier today in which he appeared to be trying to make himself less popular with Real Madrid fans, so naturally the Portuguese was likely to come up at Rafa Benitez's pre-match press conference. When asked about the next Chelsea manager, Rafa had the following to say:

I doubt there are too many Chelsea fans upset to hear this, as Rafa doesn't seem like the type that would say anything if he thought there was even the slightest chance of a return.

This comment probably won't do much to quiet the singing for a return of the special one, but it certainly should go a long way towards creating a positive atmosphere for each of the 2 remaining home fixtures this season. Now let's just make sure we win them.
