Rafa has made it very clear that his award as Manager of the Month for October is an award for all the hard work that has been done at Newcastle by a lot of different people and the fans and the City of Newcastle share in the award.
The words on his web-site today show just what a team player he is and it’s not a surprise that his strong leadership has brought not only the players together into a very strong team, but he’s brought together everybody associated with Newcastle United Football Club.
And that includes the City of Newcastle.

This is what Rafa has put up on his web-site:
“I have just been informed that I have been awarded the ‘best coach of the month for October ‘ by the LMA and I am honored to accept.”
“However, as we all know, in a collective sport like football,the whole is greater than the sum of the parts and would not be possible without the effort, collaboration of all those who make up a team.”
“Starting from the players, the coaching staff and all at the club, come together to combine and achieve their objective.”
“To make fans happy who support their club through good and bad times, week in, week out.”
“To all the staff, players and contributors, I appreciate their daily support.”
“I receive this award in their name and for the city. This is a prize for all.”
“Come on Toons!”
Rafa is showing himself to be a brilliant manager at Newcastle United and such a warm-hearted and inspirational figure too.
Long may this all continue.
Howay The Lads!!
