Rafa Benitez Appointment Blows Up Twitter

Newcastle United announced Rafa Benitez as the new Newcastle manager only hours after announcing that Steve McClaren had been fired as the head coach.

The very first thing Rafa did was to cancel the players day off and held his first training session at Benton with his new coaching team.

Fabio Pecchia, Francisco de Miguel Moreno and Antonio Gomez Perez who come in and will join Ian Cathro and Simon Smith to form Benitez’ coaching team.

And the appointment has simply blown up Twitter with Geordie fans simply delighted we now have a world-class coach at the club.
