Newcastle fans react to Genesio links

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to Friday’s shock news, as reports claim the Magpies could be lining up Bruno Genesio to replace Rafael Benitez this summer.

As of right now, there are no concrete signs of Benitez penning a new contract on Tyneside, and according to according to L’Equipe the Magpies are lining up Genesio in the event the Spaniard leaves.

The L’Équipe report claims that Pini Zahavi, who is Genesio’s agent, has been asked directly by Newcastle about the Frenchman’s availability.

Chronicle Live have since added to the reports, appearing to suggest that there is something in the links, but they also confirmed that Benitez is still the number one target.

Genesio started his managerial career at Lyon in 2015, and has been in charge of the Ligue 1 outfit ever since.

He has a win percentage of 54 per cent, but what is even more impressive is his ability to develop and nurture young talent, with the likes of Moussa Dembele (22), Bertrand Traore (23), Houssem Aouar (20) and Tanguy Ndombele (22) all flourishing this season.

As wonderful as Benitez is, Genesio is no slouch, and his appointment would be fantastic news for youngsters like Sean Longstaff.
