Newcastle coach shares on Twitter training ground mood after relegation

St James Park

Newcastle United have been relegated to the Championship.

Newcastle United coach Simon Smith has revealed on social networking site Twitter the mood at the training ground today.

The Magpies have been relegated from the Premier League and will play in the Championship next season.

Sunderland’s 3-0 victory over Everton at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday evening consigned Rafael Benitez’s side to Championship football for the 2016-17 campaign.

The Newcastle players trained today, and the mood was that of disappointment and dejection, the club’s Head of Goalkeeping has disclosed on Twitter.

Newcastle will return to action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at home in the Premier League.

The players will be determined to put on a show and win the match to give the St. James’ Park faithful some optimism for next season.

The Championship is a very tough and competitive league, and the Magpies will not find it easy to finish in the top six.

What Newcastle need to do is appoint a manager who knows the league inside out - if Benitez leaves - and then allow him to make the signings in the summer transfer window.
