The former Barcelona coach had been linked with the permanent role at Chelsea for some time and while Blues owner Roman Abramovich is believed to have been eyeing the Spaniard for months, it was announced yesterday that Guardiola will take charge of Bayern in the summer.
When asked by BBC Sport if Guardiola's decision would result in an extended term for Benitez at the Premier League club, the former Liverpool boss said: "Guardiola has gone there and it's good for him. We will try to be ready for our next game."
Benitez remained coy when questioned whether he has been holding talks with the club.
The 52-year-old said: "I have to concentrate on the game. You say that we have some problems at home so I will try to concentrate on the game. That is my job."
Benitez witnessed his side draw 2-2 with Southampton at home last night.
