A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a tweet that has been posted by leading sports lawyer Nick De Marco QC which featured a picture of Miles Davis’ 1960 album Sketches of Spain.
De Marco is acting on behalf of Newcastle United in their dispute with the Premier League over their alleged rejection of a Toon takeover bid from a consortium consisting of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), PCP Capital Partners and the Reuben brothers.
This tweet featuring the Sketches of Spain album was posted shortly after it emerged that ex-Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has left his post as manager of Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional.
So, how have these Newcastle United fans been reacting to De Marco’s tweet?
Many of the Toon supporters who replied to De Marco’s post took this tweet as a hint that Benitez may be on his way back to St. James’ Park.
“My head cant handle this”
“Cmon nick. Sketches of Spain. You no something we don’t.”
“This is too much takeover hints for one day, Spain? Rafa? It’s overwhelming”
“Nick you absolute tease!”
“That’s plain naughty, why don’t you throw in some Tapas and a glass of Rioja”
Is Rafa coming back to St. James' Park?
“Amazing album Nick…and yes, I can’t help but make the Rafa connection !”
“Sketches of Spain eh? Rafa is Spanish!!! It’s on!! Get the #cans”
Judging by these Newcastle fans’ replies to De Marco’s post, it’s clear that plenty of the North East club’s fans believe that the lawyer is privy to some information on Benitez’s future and think he is dropping a big clue via this post.
