Rafa did not want to say too much about Sunderland;’s relegation to League one which was made official last night when they lost to Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage.
And it was a late goal from Newcastle’s Aleksandar Mitrovic that turned out to be the winner.
It’s a sad state of affairs for Sunderland and Rafa did not want to get into it too much, since he doesn’t know what exactly is going on at the Black Cats.
Rafa Benitez – didn’t want to say too much
When asked to comment about Sunderland’s second successive relegation this is what the Newcastle manager had to say:
“For me, it’s not fair to talk about that.”
“For any team that has been relegated, it’s bad for the city and the atmosphere.”
“I have sympathy for that, but I will not say too much.”
“It’s not easy to understand how they have gone from the Championship to League One.”
It will now be at least two seasons before we have another Sunderland – Newcastle derby game.
