Chelsea interim boss Rafa Benitez insists he has a healthy relationship with club owner Roman Abramovich and his playing squad following his outburst earlier this week.
The Spaniard, who replaced fans' favourite Roberto Di Matteo back in November, criticised a section of Chelsea supporters for their conduct since his arrival, as well as taking umbrage with the board for labelling him 'interim' manager.
The former Liverpool boss is expected to receive a hostile reception when his side host West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but he has urged the supporters to get behind the team instead.
He said: "I didn't have any problem with the board. I didn't have any problem with Michael Emenalo [the technical director]. I didn't have any problems with Roman Abramovich. I don't have a problem with the players.
"What I want to do is the best for the team, the best for the club. I have been for 26 years training and coaching and always I have had principles, respect and education. It's the way that I have achieved what I've achieved.
"We have 11 games to play. If we stick together, it will be easier and we can get more points.
"I would like to see a fantastic atmosphere supporting the team, and I will be really pleased with that."
