Rafa Benitez has said he has committed himself to a legendary English club.
So now we like Rafa even more than before.
🙂 🙂 🙂
The Newcastle fans can play a HUGE part in the survival of Newcastle United this season now that Rafa Benitez is on board.
And even if we don’t start winning games immediately, Rafa is good enough that we could possibly start winning a string of games before the end of the season – so we must not give up hope whatever the initial results may be.
A relaxed, confident and smiling Rafa Benitez today
Arriving at St. James’ Park
Here again is what Rafa said when introduced as the new Newcastle United manager:
“I have the pleasure to confirm I have committed to a legendary English club, with the massive challenge of remaining part of the Premier League.“
“It will be a challenge not just for me and my staff but for the players, the Club and the fans.” “All of us must push together in the same direction and with the same target in mind.“
“This is the reason why I’m going to ask for your total support to successfully complete this task.” “Personally, it means my return to the Premier League, closer to my home and my family. I can’t be happier.“
“C’mon Toon Army! The club and I need your total involvement!”
We knew Rafa was nobody’s fool, but he has immediately asked for the Newcastle fans to be right behind him and his players.
And he’s right – given where we are in the league table right now – to say it will be a massive challenge for everybody associated with Newcastle United to survive this season.
He will get the support from the Newcastle fans – there’s not doubt about that.
And he will take the training tomorrow and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if stacks of fans turn up to try to get a glimpse of Rafa – but of course there is also serious work to do before Monday night, when we take on league leaders Leicester City.
Rafa could also have an instant impact on the Newcastle players, who will want to perform for Newcastle’s new world-class manager.
This week has been just terrible for Geordie fans with the almost complete incompetence being shown by some of Newcastle’s leaders.
But let’s now put that behind us, quickly get over it and get right behind Rafa and his coaching staff and the players.
It’s going to be very difficult but we can still survive in the Premier League.
Cannot wait for his news conference for the Leicester City game.
Howay The Lads!!
