6:07 am on 8 May 2013

Rafael Benitez says he's expecting to be replaced as Chelsea boss by the former Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea's interim manager reiterated he would be leaving Stamford Bridge as planned at the end of the season having signed a short-term contract to take charge in November, following the sacking of Roberto di Matteo.

Benitez says the identity of his successor is an open secret.

In the meantime Mourinho's in hot water at Read Madrid dealing with a divided dressing room and an anxious president as the club endeavours to finish second in the Spanish league.
