Rafa Benitez Tweets Confirmation of Dalian Yifang Appointment

In what has to be a bit gut-wrenching for Newcastle fans, Rafa Benitez has tweeted the following on his Twitter page:


That makes it official that Rafa Benitez has well and truly moved on from Newcastle United.

Rafa issued his statement yesterday morning and also gave a revealing interview to George Caulkin with the Times.

We all know the reason why this has happened and Rafa will now move on to excel in the Chinese Super League.

He will bring all the professionalism and meticulous attention to detail that he brought to Newcastle over the past three years and that will now be on full display in Dalian.

While we respect this decision by Rafa Benitez as he had truly grown weary of working under Mike Ashley, we are sickened at what has unfolded over the past week.

Well, make that the past twelve years.

This reign of terror has to end soon. It just has to.
