Newcastle United supporters in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful that their club offers Rafa Benitez a new contract.
Newcastle United manager, Rafa Benitez has reiterated his willingness to stay as Toon manager stating that he’s happy to be on Tyneside.
There have been reports that the Magpies boss was prepared to resign following a disappointing summer transfer window, yet Benitez has refuted such claims in today’s press conference, stating that he’s happy to continue his duties as Newcastle manager.
The experienced Spaniard guided the Toon army towards the Championship title last season, and Newcastle have also enjoyed a surprisingly good start to the new Premier League season.
They’re currently positioned in 10th place having amassed nine points from their opening six games, a total of three victories and three defeats.
Our resident Newcastle fans are eager for Benitez to extend his contract with the club, however they sense that Ashley’s presence could prevent Rafa from signing.
Here are the best responses that Twitter can provide:

Didn't he just sign a new contract? Since when do managers get a new contract every year

The way Justin Rose moves with player transfers I can’t see him acting very quickly with Rafa.

Hasn’t he got 2 years left on his deal?
