Plenty of Newcastle United fans have been drooling over the prospect of former Magpies’ manager Rafael Benitez returning to St James’ Park.
According to The Telegraph, the Spanish tactician is keen to grasp hold of the reins once more, inheriting the hot seat from current boss Steve Bruce and bringing Manchester City defender John Stones and Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley with him to Tyneside.
Will Rafa Benitez return to St James’ Park?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were delighted with the report and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan pleaded with the club to “bring him home”, while another urged Benitez to finish his project.
Bring him home, bring him home, bring him home 😍

He understands us, he gets what the club means to us, he has already looked at what we need (The plans for youth development and training facilities) which were rejected by Ashley. Come back Rafa and finish what you started.
