Benitez - You have to find the players you need quickly

Rafa Benitez insisted Newcastle United are not yet safe in the Premier League - but insisted he is not asking for the earth to stay on as manager next season.

Speaking directly after the 1-0 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, Benitez underlined what he meant by doing the “right things” in terms of his future.

The Toon boss - who is on the brink of guiding United to safety for the second season running - said: “It’s just to go to the transfer window and sign the players that you need at the right time. “Sometimes you have the players and you cannot get players because a team can pay more money than you.

“But obviously everyone says the same: that you have to go early, you have to choose your targets that you need.

“It’s not that you need to sign the best player in the world and then maybe you sign 10 players around that they cannot play with him.

“You have to try to find the players that you need, and do it quickly.

“Then you have a city, a massive club with all the potential to grow and do things better, and try to compete with anyone in the Premier League.

“Obviously the top six are a little bit far away now, but still you can compete in the other range if you do a little bit better.”

And while United are effectively in the Premier League next term, Benitez was asked if the club are safe, he said: “Not yet.

“I think that we are closer but we have to wait and see what happens in the next games, but at least we are very, very close now.

“We have to be careful.

“We thought 38 points would be the mark that you could be safe, but Cardiff won some games, so we will see.

“Obviously we are closer, and we are confident that it could perhaps be enough.”

Unfortunately as far as Mike Ashley is concerned it will probably fall on deaf ears. Nothing has really changed and the fact that he recently lost £150m will not help our cause I guess!
