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.

But just like how things don’t always work out how we want or plan, Benitez was not able to turn Everton’s fortunes around and it eventually cost him his job in the process. Following series of defeats in the League and the last one before his sack, an embarrassing hike defeat to Huddersfield, it was clear that he had no idea how to make things better at the club and they sacked him as a result.

Rafael Benitez admits disappointment amid the lack of transfer business

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.

Speaking to reporters, Benitez acknowledged that he is not pleased with the current situation at the club, given they have failed to make a single signing during the ongoing transfer window, he said: “Disappointed – obviously. A little bit of everything. Today is the 26th, so I don’t need to say too much. We don’t have any players here.”
