Rafa will hold his press conference this afternoon for the game at home to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, and it will be televised live around the world.
Rafa will be all business as usual, and he’s nearly always in a positive mood about the next game.
After three wins on the trot as well as winning the last three games at home there; no reason to think today will be any different.
There will be the inevitable questions on his future, but we still have 6 games and 18 points to play for, and Rafa will demand a good finish from his players to what’s been a tough season.
A win on Sunday will take us over the 40 points target to 41 points – a draw will not.
Rafa Benitez – perfect manager for Newcastle
Things are still uncertain for Rafa at Newcastle, and he doesn’t know if owner Mike Ashley really wants to sell the club for around £350M in the summer.
That’s the news, but you never know what Ashley is really thinking.
Ashley selling the club seems what will be needed to get Rafa to sign a long-term deal to continue his fabulous work for the Newcastle club.
His personality, coolness, and experience have steadied the Newcastle ship even under another challenging season, and the club looks solid and stable with the Spanish manager in control.
But Ashley is a stubborn man and will want a decent price for the club.
Let’s hope the summer isn’t all about Ashley trying to sell the club he has made an investment of £268M in but has done very little to improve the club.
Things look bright for Newcastle United with Rafa as the manager, but we are now waiting for Mike Ashley to sell the club he has messed around since he bought the club in late May eleven years ago.
