Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard reckons Rafa Benitez was a success in his time at Stamford Bridge.

Despite that, though, Lampard did not grow close to Benitez on a personal level. "There are certain managers you build relationships with and feel closer to," Lampard told The Sun. "He's not that kind of bloke. "Other managers draw a bit of a line and keep it that way. Rafa's more like that. "He was not really the sort of manager you could sit and talk with."
