Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez is looking forward to the opportunity to win the FIFA Club World Cup later this month.
The Blues are in the FIFA-held tournament through winning the Champions League last season and should they triumph it will be the second time Benitez has picked up the trophy.
The Spaniard also lifted the silverware when in charge of Inter, although it proved to be his last act at the heml, before he parted company with the Nerazzurri.
Now, having been parachuted into Stamford Bridge until the end of the season, he has the chance to lead a team in the tournament once again.
And for Benitez, the FIFA Club World Cup is a superb chance to lift silverware.
"It’s important to have an opportunity to win any trophy, but especially this one", he told his side’s official site.
"It was a great experience for me and I hope it will be for my players.
"I got to the final in 2005 and won the tournament in 2010."
Benitez got his first win as Chelsea manager yesterday, with the Blues running out 3-1 winners over Sunderland in the Premier League.
