World number four Rafael Nadal of Spain has congratulated his compatriot Rafael Benitez on becoming Chelsea FC’s new manager.

The Spanish tennis star tweeted, “Congratulations to Benitez for his move to Chelsea! I wish you luck in this new stage.”

Chelsea’s billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich sacked club’s former manager Roberto Di Matteo on Wednesday and appointed Benitez as interim coach of the club on Thursday.

Nadal, who recently started court training after a gap of almost five months, is a huge follower of football. He is a die heart fan of Barcelona Football Club, with one of his uncles being the legend of the Spanish club. The 26-year-old has often said that he would have become a professional football player had he failed to do well at tennis.

Meanwhile, Abramovich is famous for sacking his club’s managers. The Russian has dismissed eight managers in as many years since he took over the club in 2003.

No one could have thought that Abramovich would throw away Di Matteo out of the club as the latter managed Chelsea to its first UEFA Champions League title in the last season. That was not his only achievement as the English club also captured its 7th FA Cup title under the Italian. However, Chelsea’s 0-3 loss at the hands of Juventus in a crucial group stage match of this seasons UEFA Champions League made Abramovich to announce Di Matteo’s sacking within hours.

Benitez will have a tough job under these circumstances. He has a very good track record as he coached a couple of clubs to their respective heights. The Spaniard helped Valencia to win its first La Liga crown, breaking the strong hold of Barcelona and Real Madrid on the Spanish league. Then he went to Liverpool and guided them to UEFA Champions League glory.

Benitez does not have a good reputation among Chelsea fans as he used to make degrading remarks against them when he used to manage Liverpool, tagging them as plastic fans. However, when the Spaniard will manage the English club for the first time against Manchester City on Sunday, everyone related to Chelsea will hope for a good start for Benitez.
