Rafa Benítez's angry message to Newcastle United owner

Rafa Benítez's angry message to Newcastle United owner

The Venezuelan worldwide becomes Newcastle's sixth summer signing following the arrivals of Martin Dubravka, Kenedy, Ki Sung-yueng, Fabian Schar and Yoshinori Muto. 'The clubs were talking for a long time and now I'm focused on the season to help my team mates to get the points to do well this season.

And after finalising the move, Rondon expressed his pride at joining "one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League".

Most Magpies fans want Benitez at the helm and also want to see more committed investment into the playing staff so it's safe to say that the majority didn't take Keys' side of this particular argument.

Manager: Rafa Benitez - The Uefa Champions League and Championship victor steered Newcastle into the top half despite frustrations in the transfer market.

With the club's opening Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur less than a week away, the decision on the players' behalf not to speak to the media will come under widespread scrutiny if they uphold their stance.

When pushed on if he knew of any deals happening anytime soon, Benitez said: "I have no idea". The Venezuelan striker has not scored more than ten goals in any of his three seasons at West Brom but s the type of striker who contributes elsewhere in attack and will facilitate other attackers coming into play. "We'll see where we are and we will fight until the last minute, trying to improve the squad first then after that the team". Can we do the ideal window now? Last season they were promised £4 million to share amongst the squad for avoiding relegation, with an additional £1 million for each position above the bottom four.
