WATCH: Brilliant footage of Benitez emerges to prove Rafa really is a Geordie – what a bloke!

A brilliant video has emerged from the NUFC training ground today, showing Rafa Benitez unmoved by the snowy conditions and out taking training in a pair of shorts – showing that the Spaniard really is a Geordie at heart after all!

Most people will have spent the last few days locked indoors or wrapped up whenever they’ve ventured out to face the wintery conditions, but not Rafa..

Instead, the Newcastle United boss was out in a blizzard inspecting the pitch and taking training in his shorts!

Here’s the brilliant clip that was posted on social media by the club’s official Twitter account, showing the gaffer braving the cold in true Geordie fashion while the rest of the team were spotted shivering in leggings, snoods, hats and gloves!

The ‘beast from the east’ is nothing for Benitez it seems!

It’s fair to say NUFC fans were impressed, with Rafa clearly settling right into life in the North-East based on his handling of the cold!
