Benitez reportedly ready to quit Newcastle, fans react

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest news on Rafael Benitez’s future, and they have every reason to be worried.

According to The Northern Echo, Benitez is ready to quit if the club do not meet his demands.

The report states that suggestions that the Spaniard loves the club too much to leave are false, and that he will indeed walk if the impasse over his contract continues.

The 59 year-old is attracting interest from China and the Middle East, which would of course mean huge financial compensation, while a handful of La Liga clubs are also linked.

And the boss himself may have unwillingly added fuel to the fire on Thursday, denying reports that Matt Ritchie has been told he can leave this summer: “If I don’t know if I have a contract how can I tell him?”

The report from The Evening Chronicle includes more quotes from the boss on Ritchie and his future, but fans are already putting two and two together and suspecting he will leave.
