Chelsea striker Fernando Torres suggests that Rafael Benitez could remain at Stamford Bridge if he wins a trophy before the end of the season.

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has refused to rule out the possibility of interim manager Rafael Benitez remaining at Stamford Bridge.

It is expected that Benitez will depart Chelsea at the end of the season, but Torres, who worked with the 52-year-old at Liverpool, believes that a trophy could dictate his Spanish compatriot's future.

The 29-year-old told AS: "In football, you are judged on your results.

"We are still going for two trophies, and if things go well, then everything will look different to how they do now or did two months ago.

"When Di Matteo came to the club, he was also interim manager and he won the double, and stayed on for another season."

Benitez has won 19 out of his 35 matches in charge at Chelsea.
