‘Cancelled Season Ticket’, ‘Mike Ashley Is The Worst’: Newcastle United Fans Livid As Benitez Departs

Newcastle United finally announced the departure of manager Rafael Benitez amid prolonged takeover talks. The Spaniard will leave Tyneside following the expiry of his contract at the end of this month, after helping the club survive in the English top flight for two back to back seasons.

“We have worked hard to extend Rafa’s contract over a significant period of time, However, it has not been – and will not be – possible to reach an agreement with Rafa and his representatives.” – said a Newcastle statement

Benitez initially joined Newcastle back in 2015/16 season, when he replaced Steve McLaren, with the club one point from safety with ten games left. Although he failed to steer Magpies out of relegation that season, he guided them to promotion the following campaign. The ex-Liverpool manager played a key role in building a cohesive unit that managed to maintain their Premier League status for two consecutive seasons despite the off-field issues.

Essentially, Benitez quickly became a fan favourite at St. James’ Park and his departure will be a massive blow for the fans. So naturally, they took to Twitter to voice their disapproval over the decision. 

Some fans are majorly concerned about the disappearance of the traditional route in modern football, pretty much like what’s happening in the Bundesliga right now.

Time for memes and banters.

So, are the Magpies really heading towards relegation next season?

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has been on the end of some valid criticism, of late and the departure of Benitez didn’t help his cause.

Some even cancelled the season tickets in response to Newcastle’s release of Benitez.
