The former Liverpool and Chelsea boss has committed his future to Newcastle, and former Sky Sports presenter Keys has revealed that he is happy with Benitez’s decision.
Fair play to Rafa. I'm delighted he's staying at St James'. I hope it works out for everybody. It's time that mighty club got it right again— Richard Keys (@richardajkeys) May 27, 2016
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.
