Rafa Benitez makes it clear to his players that they cannot use Newcastle’s transfer window difficulties as an excuse for not performing in the Premier League.
Rafa Benitez, the Newcastle boss said: “The main message from me for the fans is get behind the players because it’s now the way. I was telling the players that we cannot make excuses, so we have to be ready and try to win the games and that’s it.
“Sometimes we will do it and sometimes, we will not do it, but we have to be sure that every single game, the players give everything and myself and my staff will do the same.”
Benitez believes Mauricio Pochettino’s team will not be distracted and says,’’Pochettino is a great manager, that is obvious, and they have the same team that has finished second and third in the last two years, so that means they have a very good team.
“Everybody was praising the talent of this squad, the understanding between players, young players. When you have young players with a good understanding and another year of experience, they have to be better, so I don’t think it will be a problem for them because they have the same manager, the same staff, the same players and more experience in the Premier League, so they will be even more dangerous.”
