Tony Cascarino suggested on the Weekend Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT (8:13am, June 9, 2019) that Rafael Benitez, and not Jose Mourinho, is the right manager for Newcastle United at this moment in time.
Benitez is in charge of Newcastle at the moment, but the Spaniard is out of contract at the Premier League club this summer and no new deal is in place.
It has been reported that the Portuguese manager is ready to talk to Newcastle’s potential new owner Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan if the takeover of the Premier League club goes through.
Former Chelsea striker Cascarino, though, believes that Benitez is the right manager for Newcastle at this moment in time.
Cascarino said on the Weekend Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT (8:13am, June 9, 2019) when asked if Mourinho is the right manager for Newcastle: “I think Rafa’s the right fit at this moment in time.
“Newcastle fans have given the manager their full backing over the last couple of years, and you do wonder what sort of impact Rafa could have had at that football club with money.”
Rafael Benitez stay
Benitez is one of the best managers in the world, and the Spaniard has done a truly magnificent job at Newcastle given the limited funds he has had.
There is a lot of potential at Newcastle, and with the fans behind him, the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager can certainly take the club forward if he is allowed more transfer funds to bring in quality players.
