Benitez questions Chelsea hunger

Rafa Benitez has questioned the hunger of the Chelsea players after their Champions League win last year.

Benitez wonders whether winning the competition reduced their competitive edge.

“Chelsea were a top side who had already won many trophies but were missing one,” said Benítez. “But then they won the Champions League, a massive achievement. It’s like: ‘OK, we have done the most difficult thing.’ And it changes a little bit the perception. It is normal.

“It changes the approach for the next competition. But if you want to stay at the maximum level for a while, you have to be competitive. That is the difficult thing, to manage the hunger of the players and the hunger of the staff.”
