Newcastle fans here in the Tavern are hoping that Rafa Benitez will decide to stay at the end of the season, as the Spaniard’s future at St James’ Park is looking less than certain.
Rafa Benitez has had a rather rough return to the Premier League as his Newcastle United side are flirting with the possibility of relegation, with eight crucial games left in the current campaign. Although, he has had to deal with limited support from the club’s owner Mike Ashley, something that’s frustrated Benitez throughout his time at St James’ Park.
Indeed, the 57-year-old has conflicting thoughts on whether he wants to remain at the club at the end of the season, and would only extend his contract if Mike Ashley allows him to start building a team that can compete at the top end of the table.
Although, the Landlord here in the Tavern believes that Rafa Benitez will decide to pack his bags and leave at the end of the season, after witnessing Mike Ashley’s laziness in the January transfer window. And, with an unhealthy relationship between the pair causing all sorts of problems already, it’s unlikely that the Sports Direct mogul will change his ways having shown little care thus far.
Nevertheless, we’re asking supporters, will Rafa Benitez be at Newcastle next season?
