Benitez wants to compete for something more

Rafael Benitez wants to stay at Newcastle United in the future, but claims he wants the club to be more ambitious. The Spaniards contract runs out on 30 June 2019 and asked whether he will sign a new deal with the club, he could not give a specific answer.

“We have had conversations and will have conversations in the next couple of weeks and see where we are,” Benitez said. It’s so simple. You can see the potential, you can feel the passion of the fans and what the club means to them.

Benitez wants Newcastle to have more ambition than just stay in the Premier League. Multiple times he said the Magpies need to invest more in the transfer market. This time, he is realistic about the situation following a 3-2 loss against Liverpool.

“We have to try to compete with the teams around us. At the moment it’s not easy. I’m really proud and pleased that we’ve stayed up but I would like to compete for something more.”
