Oriol Romeu speaks about Rafa Benítez


The Valencia player - Oriol Romeu has given an interview to 'Onda Cero' Radio in which he discusses the time being coached by Rafa Benitez at Chelsea FC. After a difficult start to the season with the London club, the midfielder says that "I was very happy with Rafa. He is a coach that can analyse the opposition very well, his tactical knowledge is very good. He has his teams as we could see in Liverpool FC very well set up on the field and this is what I like so much". The opportunity for Romeu to play arrived with the appointment of Rafa Benitez who chose him to play in several match’s: "When Rafa Benítez came to Chelsea I saw an opportunity. He chose to play me in some matches, something that had not happened for months and that was a good thing for me".

The Catalan player remembers Rafa’s time at Chelsea in a very positive way. He thinks that the coach did a great job and that "Rafa achieved what he was asked to do. He faced a very difficult situation: take over the team in the Champions League after the change of management. He accomplished perfectly, winning the Europa League and reaching third in the Premier League, we could not ask him for more" he declared to 'Onda Cero Radio'.

Romeu thinks that Benítez is doing well because "He is a great coach, he knows so much about football. What can I say about Rafa Benítez, his CV proves it".
