Newcastle United are yet to really hit full stride under Rafa Benitez in the current campaign but they’ve certainly impressed recently having won three of their last four Premier League fixtures.
Supporters will be pleased with the direction their side are heading in but there’re a number of things raising concerns off the field, as Rafa Benitez and Martin Dubravka’s futures are less than certain.
Therefore, here are the potential consequences of the Newcastle fan favourite departing…
ST JAMES’ PARK DEVASTATED
The last thing that supporters would want is for Dubravka to depart as he’s been nothing short of brilliant since joining permanently back in the summer. Indeed, the 30-year-old has cured what was the Magpies’ problem position and he’s already played a huge part in the current campaign.
Therefore, supporters would be extremely devastated to see him go as they’d need to pull off something special to bring in a replacement that can step up to the same level.
LEFT WITH HUGE VOID
It’s safe to say that Dubravka has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League in the current campaign, with his shot-stopping abilities coming to the rescue on a number of occasions.
Dubravka departing would leave Newcastle with a huge void to fill as he’s been one of their most consistent performers and it would be almost impossible to find someone on the same level. And, with Mike Ashley typically keeping his money stashed away, other than signing Miguel Almiron, they may have to find another gem.
Newcastle United fans, surely Dubravka leaving could prove to be fatal?
