Newcastle fans react to news Benitez is already planning for January

Newcastle United supporters have been pretty downbeat in recent times after seeing their team head into the season’s first international break without a victory in the Premier League.

Rafa Benitez’s men went into their encounter with champions Manchester City last time out having picked up just one point from their opening three league games, which came courtesy of a 0-0 draw at Cardiff City. And while they produced a spirited display against Pep Guardiola’s Citizens last weekend, it wasn’t enough to register their first win of the season as goals from Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker either side of a DeAndre Yedlin equaliser sealed all three points for the North West outfit.

As such, there have been many frustrated Magpies supporters up and down the country in recent times, although they are likely to be intrigued by recent reports that manager Benitez is indeed planning for the January window.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss was again left somewhat frustrated by owner Mike Ashley during the summer in only luring seven players to St James’ Park, two of which on loan deals and another on a free transfer.

And given the recurring promises broken by the Newcastle owner, many are speculating as to whether Benitez will remain at the club much longer if he has to continue working with his hands tied behind his back, but reports suggest that he is indeed planning for the January window, which could suggest that he will stay on Tyneside.

Yet many Newcastle fans on Twitter are not reading anything into this recent report…

Newcastle fans… what do you think? Let us know!
