Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern really can’t wait to see how their side gets on back in the top flight after their brief spell away in the Championship.
The Magpies returned with the second tier title under their arms and now the task for Rafa Benitez and his men has to be to build on the squad in the summer to make sure it stands up to the rigours of the top flight.
We should, then, expect a fair chunk of money to be spent in the summer window by the club and in a wide-ranging interview with The Daily Mail, Benitez has revealed the ambitious plans he has for the club.
“When I start something I put all my passion into it.
“I will try to do my best and hopefully everything will be fine. The things will be done in the right way and we can build what we want to build, a strong team and a strong club that can compete in the Premier League for everything.”
In the long-term, then, Rafa appears to want to get the Magpies back amongst the elite in the English game and the club’s fans will surely be pleased to hear that.
Even so, there is a long time surely before that can happen and so it appears the Spaniard is planning on being at the club for a serious amount of time.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
