Alan Shearer has never been confident that Rafa Benitez will stay at Newcastle and he has said in the past that if Rafa walked away from Newcastle, we couldn’t blame him.
While that may be true and he has not been treated well over the last 16 months by owner Mike Ashley – Rafa is becoming emotionally attached to Newcastle and the fans.
We hope Rafa is becoming emotionally attached to Newcastle and the fans.
Ashley has failed to support Rafa in the last three transfer windows, yet we are still 10th in the Premier League and it’s clear Rafa has done a fantastic job on Tyneside.
Alan Shearer – Rafa could walk
As usual, we have no idea what Ashley will do to try to keep Rafa on Tyneside with a new contract.
One thing is clear – we don’t want to hear the owner say he will give every last penny the club has to Rafa – he said that last May and completely failed to follow through.
Here a tweet from Alan Shearer responding to Daily Mail football editor Ian Ladyman who had tweeted he wouldn’t blame him (Rafa) if he walked this summer because he will not be backed by Ashley.
I agree. No one could blame him if he did! He does love the club and the area and also realises the potential. It’s a shame others don’t! https://t.co/VWNEdNKSlu
