Newcastle fans on Twitter would go ballistic if Ashley sacked Rafa

Rafa Benitez has been a class act at St James Park. The Spaniard has seen them win the Championship and secure a 10t placed finish in the Premier League in his first two full years in the Northeast. However, with the club currently on an eight-game winless run, The Mirror is reporting that Mike Ashley could be close to sacking Benitez.

Newcastle have had a torrid start to the season. That, though, is understandable when you factor in the circumstances. The fans are in a stand-off with Mike Ashley and have been piling pressure on the Sports Direct owner to sell up as soon as possible and the club have faced five of last season’s top six in their opening eight fixtures. With that being said, the next three games they face against Brighton, Watford and Southampton will be very telling.

Being a Magpie has never been harder than it is at the moment but the supporters won’t give up easily, they’re determined to see Rafa Benitez keep his job and will be fuming if Ashley decides to cut him. A spirited performance against Manchester United saw them lose 3-2, despite being 2-0 up inside ten minutes, and if Benitez can get his team playing the way they did in the first half at Old Trafford on their weekly then not even Mike Ashley will be able to find a reason to sack him.

As you can see, sacking Rafa is not what the fans want and they’ll be keen to see the Spaniard stick around long after Ashley’s been cut from the club.
