Corinthians wary of Rafa Benitez's new Chelsea

Corinthians coach Tite admits he is wary of new Chelsea coach Rafael Benitez and the changes he could bring to the side ahead of the Club World Cup.

Benitez was announced as Chelsea's new manager after the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo, a move that did not go down well with fans as they jeered the Spaniard on Sunday.

Tite told reporters: "Individual characteristics will remain part of their team. But now with Benitez's new structure it will change. Against Manchester City they were dominated in the first half, but then they were balanced. 

"They have changed their idea of football, it was notorious. They were a team that marked tightly, seeking the counterattacks, very competitive and had quick transitions, but not without some possession.

"They've changed that, their football is more fluid, a line of three more creative players, but it didn't fit because it is a natural process to adjust."
