Rafa was upbeat and jovial at his press conference this afternoon for the game against Tottenham at Wembley tomorrow night.
It was similar to his last press conference last Friday, and it was hard to think that Rafa was concerned about his future at all.
And the manager has put no real timeframe on the talks with Managing Director Lee Charnley, and he’s willing for them to continue; he also said there was plenty of time to talk this week.
Of course, Rafa didn’t talk too much about any details, but it could be positive that Rafa was so relaxed and happy.
Rafa Benitez – upbeat at his press conference
We hope it’s positive that Rafa was so relaxed and happy.
Here’s some of what he had to say on the negotiations during his press conference today:
“The conversations are still the same. So no news at the moment.”
“Not really (no specific timeframe for negotiations)”. “There will be another conversation, for sure, then we will see where we are.”
“But we are not thinking too much about: ‘Oh, we need it done before this time. Or this one.’”
“We will have plenty of time to talk during this week.”
There are not many fans think we can win this game tomorrow night – but we really need the 3 points to finish in the top half of the table.
