Rafa may decide before end of season

rafaRafa Benitez may decide his future before the end of the season.

The Spanish boss is strongly fancied by the Irons but there is also interest from Newcastle although we seem to be well forward with talks involving middle men.

Sources inside the club have told ClaretandHugh that long range discussion have been held with intermediaries and that they intend to keep communications open.

And after seeing his Napoli team beaten in the semi final of the Europa Cup last night the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager said: ” Right now we have to concentrate on the game with Cesen

“I spoke to the president, I still have to talk to my family, but we have to focus on the important matches we still have.

“Will my decision only be made at the end of the season? I don’t know. We’ll see.”

  5. It has been reported in the Daily Star Slaven Bilic is ready to hold talks with West Ham.I see him as a better fit for the club than Benitez. No disrespect to the Spaniard.
