Rafa Compares Serie A With Premier League – Thankful For Newcastle’s Trust In Him

Rafa Benitez did not have a successful time of it when he took over at Inter-Milan in June 2010, and he lasted only about six months and was dismissed just before Christmas of 2010.

Rafa said the players at Inter were getting too old and needed to be replaced but he didn’t get the backing from the club’s hierarchy, and he was summarily dismissed.

Rafa is in demand now on the interview circuit as it’s clear he’s doing something good at Newcastle.

And we are currently in 7th place in the league and with a little bit more luck could be even higher in the league table.

The news of a Newcastle takeover is also getting to be a big news item with give different groups said to be interested in buying Newcastle from current owner Mike Ashley.

Rafa Benitez – Newcastle fans and execs trust him

With Rafa having experience in Serie A with Inter-Milan and then two successful years with Napoli he has talked to outlet La Repubblica about the differences between the Italian League and the Premier League.

“Money makes the difference, both to sign good players and above all, to avoid others leaving.”

“The biggest gap between Serie A and Premier League is an economic one.”

“As a consequence of that, England has better structures and training facilities but Italians are very good on the pitch.”

“I am happy at Newcastle.” “The fans are supporting us and the club’s executives trust me.”

“We do miss some quality but we are a very balanced team.

“Our objective is to survive this Premier League campaign then try to win something in the following seasons.

“That is what I see in my future.”

After the disappointment in the summer transfer window, Rafa now seems completely settled at Newcastle, and in private the local journalists are saying he’s excited with the opportunity the takeover will hand the club.

Half the Newcastle fans think we can win our next game at Burnley on Monday night.

    How predictable are Man Utd these days. Great for punters. I got 16/5 odds on Man Utd to win and under 2.5 goals. That’s one to tick off the accumulator. The Liverpool vs Hundersfield game looks the pick of the fixtures for me. Liverpool are wobbling right now.

    Just thinking that the £30m we got for Sissoko improved the clubs balance sheet allowing investors a more positive view of our finances. If next season or even this season we were to end up on a better position than Spurs that would be a sort of karma.
