Stephane Henchoz says he is not surprised that Rafa Benitez is having problems at Chelsea, after his experiences playing under him.
The former Swiss defender was managed by Benitez during his spell as a Liverpool player.
He said: “I think he’s a very good manager because he knows a lot about football and the details. The only problem for me is his man management and I’m not surprised things aren’t going well at Chelsea.
“I think he has some arrogance about him, the way he speaks to the players and the way he treats the players, is not always the best.”
The Blues fans have made it clear that they do not want him at Stamford Bridge long-term and during the Premier League game against West Brom, there were several negative banners and chants aimed at their interim manager.
Henchoz continued: “Even if you are professional you would like the manager to have a few words and speak to you. He only speaks to you when he needs you or wants something from you.
“Even Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher who spent a lot of time with him, didn’t like him that much. When Roman Abramovich signed him as Chelsea manager, I was sure that things would not go smoothly.
