The Blues' boss emphasises the need to remain patient as he hunts for his next managerial role, though he also expresses his sadness at leaving his current squad of players
The Spaniard took over at the Blues in November and, in spite of heavy criticism from the club's own supporters, took the side to a top-four place and triumph in the Europa League.

"It's important to find the right job, so you have to wait and not be impatient and see what happens," he told the press.
"There are different options but I do not see too many top sides in England available at the moment. Maybe I will have to look at other opportunities around the world."
Benitez admits that leaving his current crop of players will be sad as he has noted a marked improvement since arriving at the club, citing the two goals scored in their 2-1 Europa League final win over Benfica as examples of work put in on the training ground.
"It will be sad because you can see how they [the players] train every day, how they improve," he noted.
"In the [Europa League] final we scored two goals that we were practicing, so for me that is good as a manager."
