Rafa has been nominated for the November Manager of the Month award after winning all three league games last month.
That was quite phenomenal given that in the previous 10 games we had only managed 3 draws and 3 points.
We haven’t done too well this month picking up only one point from our two games against West Ham and Everton, but it was an excellent point at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.
Newcastle have an excellent opportunity of getting 3 points tomorrow afternoon against Wolves at St. James’ Park although they do have some good players in their team.
Rafa Benitez – Manager of the MOnth nominee
Rafa was asked about the nomination in the Shields Gazette today:
“Being nominated is fine but you have to win, what we would like to win is with the team at the end of the season, that would be more important than just one month.”
“Obviously we won three games, and for us it is more difficult to win three games than for Manchester City or Tottenham, but it still means nothing.”
“It is not giving you points, we need points and we need to be sure that at the end of the year we are fine.”
“But it is good news.”
Pep Guardiola of Manchester City and Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham are also nominated for Manager of the Month, and they also won their three games last month.
