Rafa Benitez enjoys 'special night'

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez says the 2-1 win over Benfica to secure the Europa League trophy is a "special night" for everyone associated with Chelsea.

An injury-time header from Branislav Ivanovic clinched the trophy for Chelsea, their second European triumph in successive seasons after they won the Champions League last year.

Benitez also says the way Frank Lampard has been managed this season has helped him improve and kept him fresh, as the midfielder indicated he is close to agreeing a new deal with the club.
