Rafa confirms we have to sell before we buy

Keith Downie

✔@SkySports_Keith

Chat with Rafa Benitez at Newcastle’s training camp in Dublin.

Me: “Rafa, are you under the impression you have to sell before you can buy?”
Benitez: “Yeah, maybe. I think it’s normal for us now to be like that. Unfortunately we wheel and deal - it’s the way for us.”

Sigh.

I am finding it hard to justify going back this season as it stands..we are blatently just gonna try and stay in the league again and it will be cya Rafa as his contract is up, then the wheels will fly off.

Ashley out.

Apart from when he gave Mclaren 80 mil out of nowhere, that was bizarre.

RE: Rafa confirms we have to sell before we buy

why is he still here? benitez i mean, not TA, why is he putting up with this what can only be described as "SHIT" every season, he's waved away the advances of arsenal, everton, west ham and spain, it's got me beat, throughout last season i thought he was just hanging around in the hope that fatcunt would sell up, but that aint gonna happen any time soon.

We need to shift Mitro, Gayle, Colback, Sels & Saivet to name a few.

RE: Rafa confirms we have to sell before we buy

Heartbreaking isn't it? I mean it's like he has contempt for fans & the City.

We've got a world class manager, best we've had for years, who actually loves the place and he's virtually making his position untenable.

Everyone else must be laughing at us. It's just very very upsetting.

RE: Rafa confirms we have to sell before we buy

Rafa Benitez’s contract talks at a standstill. He suggested - as he has for months - that he’ll wait to see if his squad has enough to compete this season before signing a new deal. So can’t see this being resolved quickly...

He also quotes Rafa as saying it's a matter of "When - not if" regarding a new striker, so at least that's something...

I think it's more the wage bill than anything else.

Ashley's not gonna want new players in the door and then be stuck with Colback, Saivet, Mbemba and Sels earning money for nowt.

This was the case in January as well. Slimani only signed when Mitro's deal was done - Ashley must've been panicking when the Anderlecht deal fell through...

it's not, it's about having to sell to buy which is what the thread is about, all those players there will have to be sold to finance our new players.........so much work to be done finding clubs for those lot


in fact i've just read that rafa thinks he can resolve haydens issues and keep him

.....fast forward to the start of next season when we have no 'world class' manager, no striker and no left winger (and no whoever else might come in on loan)

I pity the fool who takes this fucker on after Benitez

I think after Rafa, fat lad will revert to type and we'd be looking at another Joe Kinnrear clone!

He probably wouldn't appreciate that, seeing as he hates Mike as much as we do.
