Newcastle fans react a Benitez attends elite coaches forum

Loads of Newcastle fans have been heaping praise on Rafael Benitez, after the Magpies’ boss was one of a select group to attend the annual UEFA Elite Coaches Forum.

There is a massive divide right now between the ambitions of pretty much everyone involved with Newcastle United and the ambitions of owner Mike Ashley.

Perhaps the one show of ambition the Magpies’ infamous owner has made in the last few years is bringing in Benitez, and the Spaniard was once again selected to attend UEFA’s Elite Coaches Forum this week.

Every year the top bosses from around Europe meet up to discuss the challenges facing European football, and Benitez’s presence shows once again how foolish Ashley has been not to match his ambitions.

The Magpies have a world class manager at the helm, respected by his peers and the rest of the footballing world, and fans are now crucifying Ashley and the constant stream of pundits who speak out against “Rafa”.
