Rafa has given his press conference this afternoon for the game tomorrow against Huddersfield Town at home.
And then we play Burnley on Wednesday night at home also.
So they are two vital games coming up that will have some impact on our survival in the Premier League this season.
Rafa was clear he does not want the focus to be on his contract but on the team – and we need to get a few wins under our belt.
Rafa Benitez – at a press conference
This is some of what Rafa has said today:
“The priority is to stay up. The priority is to focus and concentrate on the team. I will not talk too much about that.”
“My contract is not the priority. The priority is to stay up and focus on the team.”
“Apart from Elliot and Clark the rest of the players are available.”
“Clark won’t be risked due to a knock. Elliot has a long-term back injury.”
“I think they (the players) know each other a little better. I think it’s been quite positive.”
“Their manager is very clear, they will fight until the end.” “They have good team spirit.”
“They will keep doing the same. The key for us to do well and score an early, it may give us more confidence.”
“The only thing is if we win both games (Huddersfield tomorrow and Burnley on Wednesday night) we will be closer.”
“Maybe the Fulham game on the last day might be the most important.”
Most fans think we will win this game tomorrow.
