Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to pile on the praise for manager Rafa Benitez as the club continues to make a respectable return to the Premier League after a season in the Championship.
Benitez grabbed four points from two matches against Brighton and Stoke, despite rotating his squad considerable over both games.
After the victory over Stoke, Newcastle supporters spotted Benitez speaking with Stoke's Eric Choupo-Moting, with some speculating that a potential move for the forward could be on the cards.
But the main topic of conversation was Benitez's job at Newcastle overall and how fans couldn't be happier with him so far.
Here's what they had to say:
Rafa Benitez doing a great job with championship players and a club in crises.— Osman (@OsmanZtheGooner) January 1, 2018
Could you imagine thinking Rafa Benitez was not the best available manager for Newcastle at the minute 🤷🏻♂️— Jack Colwell (@JackColwell) January 1, 2018
Newcastle United fans are part of one of the best periods the club has seen in some time, with everything the fans have wanted finally looking like it's going to fall into place.
Even from a neutral point of view, it's great to see a club that's been up and down have such a promising outlook on the future of their club.
