After English Premier League outfit Everton sacked their underoerforning manager Rafael Benitez following a series of poor performances and unacceptable results, the Toffees were in dire need of a replacement. After the appointment of Benitez some months ago as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti who left the club to return to take over at Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid, the opinions of Everton fans were divided. While some were unimpressed because he had previously managed the club’s fierce Merseyside rivals Liverpool in the past, some others were giving him the benefit of a doubt and wanted to see him do well.
Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has admitted that he is disappointed with the lack of new signings at the club this month. The Magpies are currently above the relegation zone by just a couple of points but their position remains far from guaranteed with difficult games against Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the horizon.
