Rafa Benitez has just given his press conference this afternoon for the tough game at Leicester City tomorrow night.
An unlikely win in that game would probably see us safe in the Premier League for this season.
Rafa has talked again about his contract situation and nothing has changed from last week – there are still no answers back from Ashley on the questions he has put to him.
Rafa Benitez answers questions from the press
This is some of what Rafa said today regarding his contract negotiations:
“It is exactly the same situation as before. We are just waiting. I just want to focus on the game and getting three points.”
“The priority now is to stay in Premier League. We will try to do what we do.”
“The debate on signing players depending on age is simple – we have to sign good players.”
“At Napoli, the President wanted to be in Europe every year. We sold Cavani and signed a lot of experienced players.”
The problem with Ashley delaying his response to the manager is that in all likelihood that means the answer is no.
We will have to wait and see but this is not a particularly good situation to be in.
We need to need to win the game tomorrow night.
