Well-known sports presenter Richard Keys has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Rafael Benitez’s decision to remain at Newcastle United.

Benitez will carry on as the Newcastle manager in the Championship next season. The Spaniard was appointed the Magpies’ boss in March, but he failed to keep the club in the Premier League.

Benitez is a very good manager, and Newcastle fans should be optimistic about a successful 2016-17 campaign in the Championship.

The Spaniard has already made himself very popular among the fans, and some of the performances and results towards the end of the 2015-16 Premier League season were quite encouraging.

The Championship is a very tough and competitive domestic league, and Newcastle will find it hard. However, if Benitez is able to sign some good players in the summer transfer window, then the Magpies will have a very good chance of finishing in the top six.
