Rafa Benitez has launched himself on Instagram.

The Newcastle boss explaining that he sees it as a way to ‘take a step forward with my connection with all of you.’

What is there not to like about Rafa Benitez?

An excellent football manager, a quality person, and he loves dogs!

Typical of him that his first Instagram post is of his three beloved dogs: Red, Goofy and Clem.

Rafa Benitez:

“Today I want to take a step forward with my connection with all of you.

“It’s a real pleasure for me to inform you about the creation of my new Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/rafabenitezrb ).

“I’ll try to improve our relationship on social media with this new ‘bridge’ between my personal and my professional life, this time in pictures.

“I’ve always been interested in technology and its development, in my work there plenty of that is shown, and I’m always trying new things out in this area.

“Instagram, allows me to create a strong community around my passion, football. So I think that having my own Instagram account is an obvious next step for me.

“With this said, I invite you all to follow me on Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/rafabenitezrb ) to be able to know me a little bit better.

“Thank you and with my affectionate regards, I hope to see you on Instagram!”

        He could take his dogs for a walk or sit in Fenwicks window drinking Gin….

          I`ve seen that the other day

          • Leazes.

            It was bizarre…. thought I was in Amsterdam for a moment… groups of middle class ladies sitting on stools in the window of Fenwicks….. you can buy just about anything there but they’ve certainly gone downmarket.

    Goofy`s named after Penfold then.

    • Leazes.
