Benitez, who reached the Club World Cup final in 2005 and won it with Inter Milan in 2010, brushed off talk that another slip-up could cost him dear.

Chelsea face Mexico's Monterrey in Yokohama on Thursday in their semi-final and Benitez said: "With the economic crisis around the world everybody is under pressure. I don't have a problem with pressure. The future is the next game and the one after that."
