Former Newcastle United defender Fabricio Coloccini stated that the club should hold to Rafael Benitez for as long as they can. He said that he is the manager that can help them stay in the Premier League and that it is important that he remains at the head of the club.
He understands the frustration of the fans when they see that their team are not progressing but it is not the fault of the manager. He said that nowadays teams need to invest money in players if they want to progress but unfortunately this is not happening at Newcastle United.
He believes that it is only Rafael Benitez that is helping to keep the club in the Premier League and that fans should remain behind the manager. He said that the only way that the club can progress is that they get new investment and that this is not going to happen if there is no change of owners.
He believes that there need to be a change in ownership if Newcastle United is going to challenge for trophies but this is not going to happen if the current owner remains at the head of the team.
He said that the club should keep Rafael Benitez at all cost as there is no other manager of his caliber that will want to take charge of a club like Newcastle United.
