Benitez coach broke up with Newcastle

The Spanish coach left after failing to reach an agreement to extend the contract.

"It is disappointing to announce that Rafael Benitez will leave Newcastle United at the end of his contract on June 30. We have tried to renew, but failed. Rafa's assistants, including Paco de Miguel Moreno, Antonio Gómez Pérez and Mikel Antia will also leave the club on the same day. We would like to thank Rafa and his assistants for their great efforts and contributions over the past three years. and the staff because of patience during the last unrest, the appointment of a new coach will begin, "Newcastle announced on June 24.


Benitez started to lead Newcastle from the end of the 2015-2016 season, when the club had to fight for a relegation ticket. Despite the failure of this mission, the Spanish coach remained and achieved success. He brought Newcastle back to the English Premier League after only one season, before confirming his place in the next two seasons.

The process of renewing negotiations between the two sides took place for many months. However, according to Goal (Italy), Benitez disagrees with President Mike Ashley on some new terms.

The brightest candidate to replace Benitez is Garry Monk, the new manager to leave Birmingham earlier this month. Burnley's coach, Sean Dyche, and former player, former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton are also potential names.

As for Benitez, finding a new club is relatively simple. He was a candidate to replace Sarri at Chelsea, and could return to Spain, Italy to work, or to China to lead Dalian Yifang.

Before Benitez left, the British media reported that the group was from the Middle East, Bin Zayed Group wanted to acquire Newcastle. If successful, this group can bring Jose Mourinho or Arsene Wenger to become coach.
