Rafa Benitez won't commit to Newcastle without guarantees from Mike Ashley

  Rafa Benitez won't commit to Newcastle without guarantees from Mike Ashley Rafa Benitez will hold talks with Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley before committing his future to the club, after they secured their Premier League survival with a win over Arsenal. Despite reports over the weekend claiming he has already committed to staying on for at least another year, Benitez has made no promises and wants to ensure he is going to get the financial backing he needs to keep improving the team. Asked whether he will extend a contract that will have just 12-months left to run in June, Benitez replied: “If everything is right, it is a good opportunity, but everything has to be right… we have to be sure that, next year, we have the tools to compete at the level we want to compete at.” That should not detract from the joy sweeping across Tyneside. A top 10 finish for Rafa and Newcastle would be nothing short of a miracle, with a squad pretty much the same as last season, it would be a fantastic achievement.
