Lots of Everton fans have been left buzzing over some comments made by Rafa Benitez.
The Spaniard was asked by the media in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match against West Ham United to address the speculation of interest in him from Newcastle United, to which he claimed that supporters do not have to worry about him leaving anytime soon, and that he is ‘really happy’ at Goodison Park.

Nonetheless, it is no surprise at all to see so many Blues ecstatic to hear that he wants to stay, amid the speculation with one of his former clubs.
