Rafael Benitez considers a stay at Newcastle

Benitez wants to stay at Newcastle

Rafael Benitez will remain Newcastle United manager next season, no matter what division the club is in.

Upon his appointment, Benitez revealed he had no intention of working in the Championship, however the Spaniard has had a change of heart in the past 48 hours having previously accepted that he would part company with the club should they go down.

Now, with guarantees over budgets and control, he can stay at the club and take his team back into Europe.

Newcastle will be relegated if Sunderland win at home to Everton on Wednesday and Benitez will be free to leave, however, he is seriously considering the possibility of staying at Newcastle.
