Back from my mini-vacation to central Florida, normal service will resume tomorrow. But first things first, one of the most interesting headlines from today’s stories is that Fernando Torres says that Rafael Benitez made Chelsea a better team this season.
Benitez has managed his last Chelsea match in charge for the club, and looks set to be headed to Napoli. But Torres’s statement carries a lot of weight. Chelsea finished the season in far greater fashion than when they started it earlier this season. Many Chelsea fans may disagree, but Benitez seemed to get more out of this Chelsea side, playing them.
