Some Everton fans have been left buzzing as some news emerged involving Rafa Benitez.
Writing in his latest piece for The Liverpool Echo, Phil Kirkbride has now revealed that the Goodison Park faithful are not anticipating an approach from Newcastle United for their manager.
Should Everton have hired Benitez?
The Spaniard has reportedly been linked with a stunning move back to St. James’ Park after the takeover by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium was completed, but now it seems unlikely that he will be their next boss.
The news has come as a welcome relief to some supporters of the Merseyside club, given the fact that Benitez has started very well, as his team currently sit in a healthy fifth place in the table in the Premier League at the moment.
Everton fans on Benitez news
These Toffees supporters were left buzzing as the update on Benitez was shared across Twitter, with one Blues fan claiming that it is ‘good news’:
“For once it’s good news Phil”
“What a time to be alive!”
“Not when he’s got a job 30 minutes from his house. You are going to need dynamite to get him out of this job. Hopefully after many mistakes Everton might be on there way again. COYB”
“Quite right, all those Evertonians panicking yesterday, still feeling the scars of Ancelotti.”
“Rafa has proved to be a loyal employee to the clubs he served. The only club, I believe he resigned from was Dalian.”
“More likely we will sign Almiron and Saint-Maximin”
