Rafael Benitez won't be sacked or so believes Ray Wilkins

"If Pep Guardiola was to come in and was sacked then where do you go?" Ray Wilkins said. "He is supposedly the best on the planet. He is a young man of 41. You have Mourinho out there but would Jose come back? I have no idea.

London: Rafael Benitez's position as interim manager at Chelsea is secure despite the Spaniard's poor start since replacing Roberto Di Mattero, the club's former assistant coach Ray Wilkins believes.

Benitez, appointed until the end of the season, is under pressure to turn Chelsea's fortunes around quickly after two draws and Saturday's 3-1 defeat to West Ham since he was recruited by owner Roman Abramovich.

But Wilkins, when asked on BBC Radio Five on Sunday whether he thought Benitez might also be sacked, replied: "I would think that is totally out of the question."
