A smiling and fit looking Rafa Benitez has arrived at the Benton Training grounds with the sun shining brightly in Newcastle this morning.
The Newcastle United Twitter account has released this first photograph of Newcastle’s manager as he arrives for preseason training about two hours ahead of when the players are expected to start arriving.
Rafa Benitez arriving in the car park at just after 8:00 am this morning
It’s sunny and he’s smiling – what more could you ask for?
Oh yes – more signings
It will be good to see what the new training gear looks like for this season, once the players start arriving at around 10:00am local time.
Well at least Rafa is smiling – as we expected.
Now to get some players signed!
Here’s the tweet….
Rafa was first to arrive at the training ground this morning.

One of our readers Alex Wannop is completing in the GN 10K next Sunday and also the GN Run to collect funds for Tiny Lives, because the Trust provided lifesaving care for his son Isaac, when he was born by C-section and in some distress.
The Tiny Lives Trust funds the Special Care Baby Unit at the RVI where Alex’s son Isaac spent the first few weeks of his life.
Alex is appreciative of the work the great doctors and nurses did to save his son’s life and that’s why he’s raising money.
Please support this very worthwhile charity on Alex’s Just Giving page where there are pictures of his son Isaac – thanks.
