Rafa Benitez claims that many of Chelsea's players have been offering private support in the midst of a difficult spell at Stamford Bridge.
The Spaniard caused controversy on Wednesday by openly criticising factions of the club's support, with that press conference following reports that he was having difficulties with senior squad members such as John Terry. When asked whether it would help if senior players publicly backed him, Benitez said many had come to him in private.
