Benitez: Chelsea need to keep 'winning mentality'

Rafael Benitez hopes to keep Chelsea's 'winning mentality' up with a win in Sunday's World Club Cup final against Corinthians.

The Chelsea boss will become the first manager to manage a side in three separate Club World Cups, having done so before with Liverpool and Inter.

"I'm trying to keep our winning mentality and our hunger to win trophies," said Benitez. "Some people say this tournament is not the biggest in the world but I know it's an important competition."

Benitez was delighted at his landmark achievement: "I'm really pleased and really proud because I could manage three top sides in the world.

"To be here and to have this opportunity to win again is amazing and fantastic."

The Spaniard has some selection headaches ahead of the game with David Luiz competing for a place in midfield after impressing against Monterrey.

Frank Lampard could also be set for a comeback to first team action while striker Fernando Torres will hope to continue his vein of form having netted five goals in three games.
