Newcastle United: Fans blast Rafa Benitez after his latest comments on the club

Rafa Benitez was a hugely popular figure on Tyneside, helping to guide Newcastle back from the Championship and to maintain their Premier League status with limited resources, but fans don’t want to see a future homecoming.

Yes

Yes

No

No
