Rafa Bentez has given an interview about his situation currently at Newcastle United.

The Newcastle boss says ‘Normally I never have a problem with my contract.’

The United boss interviewed by journalist and friend Guillem Balague says ‘It’s just because I want to improve, I want to improve the Academy, or I want to bring better players and be more competitive.’

Rafa Benitez declaring that this has always been the same wherever he has been, pushing for what needs to be done, whether that was at Valencia, Napoli, Liverpool, or wherever.

Rafa believes that ‘The fans appreciate that’ and of course he is right.

Just as when Kevin Keegan revolutionised Newcastle United in the 90s, he pushed for full and proper backing to make the club the best it can be.

At Newcastle we have a failing underfunded Academy and poor facilities compared to competitors, whilst the need for ‘better players’ is something we are all aware of, if indeed Newcastle United are to be competitive next season and in the years that follow.

Rafa Benitez interviewed by Guillem Balague on Talksport:

My relationship with the owners, normally isn’t as bad as people maybe think it is.

“Because I’m fighting for the best for my club.

“So I am not fighting for what is best for Rafa Benitez.

“Normally I never have a problem with my contract.

“It’s just because I want to improve, I want to improve the Academy, or I want to bring better players and be more competitive.

“The fans appreciate that.

“It has been the same in Napoli, Liverpool, here (at Newcastle), Valencia.

“Then for professionals, they have this vision, they can go one step back and say listen: it’s improving my team, it’s improving my club, it’s improving my business.

“And I think that people, professionally they realise, and then their perception, it depends.

“Now the social network, it changed everything in one minute.

“So people can criticise you today and in two days time they are praising you.

“Now, if you realise that it’s like this, then you stay calm.

“You make decisions in a better way.

“So if you are too hurried to do something, you will make more mistakes.

“You have to stay calm.”
