Next week, Rafa Benitez will head into a meeting with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley while hoping they have the same ambition for the Sky Bet Championship title winners.
After Benitez side’s victory over Barnsley, Ashley made a rare visit to St James’ on Sunday afternoon. When Rafa Benitez was asked if the pair would talk during the hours after the game, he said: “I don’t know if he will be around, but I don’t have any problem. Obviously, I think it’s the right time to talk when everything is fine and if not, it doesn’t matter.’’
He added, “We will be in contact, but the main thing is to be sure we both share the same ambition about how to improve, how to be competitive and how to do the right things for everyone.”
This is the 2nd time in 7-year span when Magpies have bounced back as champions in the wake of relegation, and handed Benitez a first league title in a lower division. Earlier, he guided Valencia to La Liga glory in 2004.
He said: “Sometimes you can win with a very good team and it seems that it’s easy but in this case, when you play 46 games in a very difficult season after going down…
“We were talking about the stats for teams which have been relegated, so to do it and to do it in style today and the way that we did during the whole season, that is really, really emotional and I am really proud of that.”
