It seems the titles of my latest articles just keep coming and coming, don't they? And I have a frustrated Spanish manager to thank for that.

Rafael Benitez confirmed on Wednesday evening after Chelsea cruised to a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough that he would leaving when his "interim" contract is finished. This was swiftly followed by an astonishing rant aimed at the club's fans and hierarchy.

It was a strange time to unleash the verbal tirade, especially when the team had performed more like the Chelsea of old.

Benitez's rant will surely rule the back pages tomorrow, and do not be surprised if you see the infamous "club statement" by Friday, explaining the former Liverpool coach's departure.

If that happens, the usual long list of high-pedigree managers with world-class reputations will be drawn up, but the usual suspects will be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
