‘Pathetic’, ‘Nothing surprises me anymore’ – These Newcastle fans have their say on manager saga

Newcastle fans have been sharing their views on social media following an article in the Telegraph suggesting the club will not rush the decision of installing Rafa Benitez’s replacement. It is safe to say that supporters are less than impressed.

The vacancy has seen many names linked, including former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and ex Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, but according to The Telegraph, they have both distanced themselves from the job.

Premier League-winning manager Claudio Ranieri and Dutch title-winning coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst have both declared their interest in the role. The report suggests current Rangers boss Steven Gerrard could also be under consideration.

The fans believe the club should not be taking the slow approach and should have had possibilities already lined up, having known for a long time Rafa could be departing St James’ Park at the end of the season.

Some of the supporters are suggesting on social media that the club will push the decision as close to the transfer deadline as possible, meaning there would be no time for them to demand certain players be signed. It could all be academic if the takeover goes through and the new owners want to install their own managerial choice.
