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.

Starting with a relatively recent player. Who is this?

The former Toon claimed that he was “very happy” for Shearer, and his post sent these Toon fans wild as they begged for Benitez to return.

Proper manager him.”

@TheGingerPirlo_

@nufc_update

Do you think Benitez will return to Newcastle?

Yes, one day

Yes, one day

No, we will never see him again

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”

@PaulSutcliffe80

We need you Rafa! Come back!”

@Jason_Mag

Come home Rafa and get big Al involved.”

Benitez is back in England and is reportedly keen to get another job; however, it has been suggested he will not return to Newcastle while Mike Ashley is still the owner of the club.

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.
