This is a classy move by Benitez who will now be a fan of Newcastle United. We truly believe he wants the best for the club and also would be delighted if Steve Bruce can be successful.
We get a few Chinese Super League games on the television over here and hope to be able to watch a Dalian Yifang game at some point. They surprisingly have not been shown yet but we bet Rafa is excited that the Premier League has started again.
But it is time to support Steve Bruce and hope that he can build on what Rafa Benitez has left at Newcastle. If Bruce can be successful this season, a lot of that will be based on what Rafa was able to do in his three years at the club.
It will also be because Steve Bruce was sensible in building off of that foundation. It is in his hands now and he has the opportunity of a lifetime. He has never had a squad like this and if he can get the best out of them, then we could surprise some people this year.
