The Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern and the players all appear to share the same opinion when it comes to one man on Tyneside.
The locals are desperate to keep Rafa Benitez at St. James’ Park for as long as possible and are waiting for him to sign a new deal – a thought shared by DeAndre Yedlin. The American defender believes the club need to keep him and the discussions that will be held are going to be massive.
He also admitted to the Newcastle Chronicle that the Spaniard has taught him a lot and has helped him to develop as a player.
“Those discussions between the manager and the club are going to be massive. He is a great manager. He is loved by the city and loved by the club,” he told the Newcastle Chronicle.
“He is a manager I think we need to keep. He has obviously done great things with this team. Obviously, I am a little bit bias because he has put so much faith in me.
“He has shown his trust in me, he has given me a lot, taught me a lot and given me a lot of experience. It has helped me a lot.
“He is a manager this city and club need to keep and not only that they should try to keep him around for a long time.”
The Newcastle locals in the Tavern will completely agree with what Yedlin has said and will hope the board act upon it as quickly as possible by meeting any demands that Benitez will have to remain in charge of the Magpies.
