Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez jokes that he is blamed for everything that goes wrong at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has suggested that he will be blamed for the Blues' fixture pileup because 'everything is his fault'.

The former Liverpool boss joked that the Chelsea fans, the majority of whom have refused to back the Spaniard, blame him for everything that goes wrong at Stamford Bridge.

"As for fixture congestion, maybe someone will blame me," the Daily Star quotes Benitez as saying. "They will say it's my fault, because everything is my
fault! If something is wrong, they want to blame me. I have to manage this too."

Meanwhile, the FA Cup quarter-final replay between the Blues and Manchester United has been rearranged to April 1.
