Newcastle fans bash Benitez’s post-Forest comments

Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on Wednesday’s defeat at Nottingham Forest, and they’re really not happy with Rafael Benitez’s post-match comments.

Newcastle fell to a 3-1 defeat in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, and most fans would agree it was a pretty woeful performance.

Ayoze Perez was unlucky not to get a penalty late on for a challenge from Forest goalkeeper Luke Steele, but the Magpies were outfought and outclassed for most of the match, barely threatening the Forest goal.

Benitez has a special relationship with the fans on Tyneside, but they’re really not impressed by his post-match verdict.

“I don’t agree that Forest were the better team and I’m not concerned by how we played,” Benitez said (22:11).

“We did well to control the game after the first minute when we conceded. They were able to play on the counter attack.”

Unsurprisingly, fans don’t agree with Rafa’s comments, and the upcoming fixtures don’t get any easier.

The Toon Army travel to Manchester to face the champions this week, before Arsenal come to St. James’ Park right after the international break.
