How Significant Is It For Newcastle United To Keep Hold Of This One Person At The Club

Upon his arrival, Rafael Benitez has seen Newcastle United get relegated to the Championship and has transformed them into a semi-decent Premier League team over the course of a year. However, the lack of investment during the past few transfer windows have significantly harmed the Spaniard’s chances of improving the club’s position in the English top-flight. It is nothing short of a miracle that the Magpies boss has managed to keep the club floating in mid-table while living on such a tight budget.

The club’s owner, Mike Ashley had decided not to back the manager this summer, and it was highly likely at the time that Benitez would be forced to part ways with the Tyneside giants. However, he has still not given up and is tirelessly fighting for a chance to improve this Newcastle team, much to the delight of the Toon Army.

The Beginning Of The End?

Benitez has undoubtedly been left frustrated with the lack of spending in the transfer market and could now be looking to buy some time and move when he feels that the time is right. He has previously asked for more control over the club’s academy and player recruitment, but the Magpies are yet to agree to his demands. If the Spaniard doesn’t get his way soon, then the relationship could crumble which would only result in Benitez departing the Tyneside club over creative differences.

What Should Be Newcastle’s Play Here?

The Magpies should agree to his demands and let Benitez have more control of the club. It is not every day that a top manager like Benitez wants to manage a team who are not participating in the UEFA Champions League. Hence, fulfilling his demands could be the only way to keep Benitez happy and make the club go forward.

Should Benitez Stay At St. James Park For The Long-run?

Unless Benitez gets his wish of gaining more control over how the club’s academy is run and whether he can make sure that players who are departing the club on loan are going to choose the right club for their development, it is highly unlikely that he would commit his long-term future to the Magpies.

How Significant Is It For Newcastle To Keep Hold Of Benitez?

It is crucial for the Tynesiders to keep hold of Benitez as he can keep them in the Premier League for years to come. The lack of investment will concern the club’s fans, but it would be nothing compared to what will happen if Benitez leaves.
