Rafa leads the poll pack


rafa_a_2494019bRafa Benitez has surged into the lead as ClaretandHugh’s poll into the West Ham managerial position goes into its second day.

The poll was re-launched after it became clear that the club still hasn’t given up on the Napoli manager after the Serie A outfit revealed its interest in Jurgen Klopp who is leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

The former Liverpool boss has collected 24 per cent plus of the vote, ahead of Marcelo Bielsa and Slaven Bilic.

A spokesman for the site said: “We needed to include Rafa in the poll as our information is that the club is still very interested although admitting he remains a longshot.”

Benitez last night saw his Napoli team demolish Wolfsburg in the first leg of the Europa League quarter final clash in Germany.

    BFS WONT POLL 10% I predict, the true vote will come out today and don’t expect street parties in wetyourpants.com land,
    RAFA should be in the poll but he won’t come,Nor will Moyes,
    So it will be Bielsa or Bilic with Howe on the rails,
    I would like to see Teddy given the last 7 games of the season to see what he can do,
    Remember Sherwood last year and look at Aston V now.
