The Magpies are currently sitting pretty in the top half of the Premier League table and are some way off the relegation zone. Newcastle extended their winning run to four games on the bounce on Sunday afternoon as goals from Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie secured a shock win over Arsenal. Benitez, as quoted by the Shields Gazette, spoke of his pride with regards to how his side have performed this season as Newcastle look ahead to another campaign in the top flight. “Everybody was pushing in the same direction, and that’s the key when you want to succeed in something.” “Every single player, every fan, every member of the staff, I have to congratulate them, because it has been a fantastic achievement in a very difficult season.” Newcastle boss Benitez remains the subject of plenty of speculation, with a move to Real Sociedad recently touted by various Spanish news outlets. However, it seems he is enjoying his time at St James’ Park and is looking ahead to yet more memorable moments with Newcastle following an impressive first season back in the Premier League. “We were so good in a lot of things that in the end, I think we deserve to be where we are. Some people were dreaming that maybe we could be here, but they were not awake. We were awake, we were believing from day one.

Rafa Benitez is not a serious contender for Arsenal job .
According to HITC, Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is not a serious contender to takeover at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger leaves. When the news about Wenger leaving at the end of the season broke on Friday, many started to question who would be the man to replace the Frenchman for the 2018/19 season, but it looks like Benitez will not be joining The Gunners. Benitez joined Newcastle in March 2016 in an attempt to save the club from relegation after Steve McLaren’s awful reign at The Magpies. The former Liverpool manager couldn’t save the club from the Championship but he managed to get them promoted at the first time of asking. He has now pretty much saved Newcastle from relegation this season and the Spaniard has become somewhat of a hero for Newcastle fans, so this news of Benitez being unlikely to join Arsenal will be music to a lot of Gerodie’s ears, as the club look to push on in the Premier League next season.
