1 year ago

Sky Sports have revealed that Rafa Benitez as returned to the Newcastle United training ground.

Speculation ongoing as to exactly what is going to happen, with uncertainty surrounding both his position, as well as the ownership of the club.

It is reported that this is the first time since the season ended that Rafa Benitez has been back at the training complex.

The manager having only 20 more days remaining of his current contract, whilst it is now 25 days since the NUFC boss met Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley in London.

There is still total silence from the Mike Ashley/Newcastle United end of things on a takeover, although the Bin Zayed Group have been happy to comment on the record confirming/claiming that the takeover is indeed progressing.

Ashley/Newcastle taking the same stance today, with the local papers saying they have declined to comment regarding Rafa Benitez being back on Tyneside.

A mixed reaction from Newcastle fans to Rafa’s reappearance today, although there is collective agreement in hoping that we don’t later see the Spaniard leaving with a cardboard box after clearing his desk…
