Alan Shearer doesn't buy Mike Ashley's very defensive end of season statement

David Moyes to leave West Ham United

"I would like to thank Rafa Benitez for his magnificent achievement this season", the statement read.

"They made me some offers to stay here for a few more years, plus I have to manage my family: if I chose to go to Newcastle and stay there, even in the Championship, it's also because of my family".

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is keen for manager Rafa Benitez to stay at the Premier League club, with the English businessman promising investment in the squad ahead of the next campaign.

"Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him", said Ashley, who also insisted: "I hope very much that Rafa will remain at Newcastle United".

Benitez was several pundits' pick for Manager of the Season for what he managed to achieve with Newcastle, guiding them to a 10th place finish just a year after promotion from the Championship.


"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Newcastle United", said Kenedy.

When questioned about his future at St James' Park, Benitez responded: "I will say that I am really pleased today and I will try to enjoy then see how the conversations go!". You will need some money, and you will need a way to spend that money. They will be around - maybe they will be talking. Still, we are talking so we will see.

Benitez led Napoli to their last piece of silverware - the Supercoppa in 2014, courtesy of a 6-5 penalties victory over Juventus - and had been linked with a second spell at the helm if Maurizio Sarri left the club.

However, a takeover bid by Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital Partners broke down in January and although Newcastle are still for sale, it is understood the price-tag has increased with another season of the Premier League's riches secured. In Spain and in Italy there are many things: when I arrived in England at Liverpool, they gave me three years to win something.
