Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be hoping they can keep Rafa Benitez at the club for as long as possible and will be urging the board to get a deal done after his latest revelation.
The Spaniard has admitted that he is happy to continue with his project at St. James’ Park and has opened discussions regarding a new contract after he successfully guided the Toon Army to Premier League safety.
The locals in the bar are desperate to keep Benitez for as long as possible and will be delighted with his latest admission that he is happy at the club, although he has also stated that he wants certain assurances before committing to his future.
“I have one year left on my contract and we are already talking – and then we will see where we are,” he told BBC’s MOTD: The Premier League Show.
“My position is clear and simple: I am happy here, so hopefully we can do everything that we have to do to be sure that the relationship, the strength of the team and the club is enough to complete and maybe achieve what we want to achieve.”
The Newcastle fans in the Tavern will be overjoyed that talks have already begun over a new contract for Benitez and will be hoping the board do everything in their power to ensure the Spaniard remains in charge next season.
