Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the appointment of Rafael Benitez as the manager.
Benitez has been given the Newcastle managerial job following the dismissal of Steve McClaren.
McClaren was appointed the Magpies’ head coach in the summer of 2015, but under the Englishman, the team failed to achieve any kind of success.
Newcastle are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment and are in real danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season.
The Magpies have picked up just 24 points from 28 matches and are just a point behind 17th-placed Sunderland, although they do have a game in hand.
Benitez has a tough job on his hands, and the Spaniard will have to hit the ground running.
The former Real Madrid coach has Premier League experience with Liverpool and Chelsea, and Newcastle fans will hope that he can call upon that to save them from getting relegated.

It's gonna be such a downer if we get relegated and we replace Benitez with someone like Pearson/ 'Arry— NUFC Banter (@NUFC_Banter) March 11, 2016
