A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from Rafael Benitez in which he congratulates Alan Shearer for being included in the Premier League’s Hall of Fame.
“Love you boss come back to the toon one day x”
“Proper manager him.”
“Come home, Boss”
Do you think Benitez will return to Newcastle?
Yes, one day
No, we will never see him again
Benitez left Tyneside in the summer of 2019 after 146 games as Newcastle manager, and it is clear that many Toon fans still love him and want him back.
“Can’t wait for you to come home”
“We need you Rafa! Come back!”
“Come home Rafa and get big Al involved.”
However, it is clear from the replies just how much Benitez means to many Toon fans, and it is clear that they want him back.
Whether Benitez’s tweet was a hint over his own desires is up for debate, but there is clearly a connection between the club and the Spaniard.
It would be great to see Benitez back on Tyneside, but it is pointless speculating on his return until Ashley leaves.
