NUFC reporter reveals what Rafa did last night to make a young fan’s dream come true – What a bloke

The Chronicle’s Chris Waugh has shared a brilliant story after attending last night’s NUFC foundation Dinner, revealing that Rafa Benitez went out of his way to invite all of the award winners to attend a training session and meet their heroes.

As Waugh highlights, this was ‘unprompted’ and ‘off the cuff’, reminding us all that he is not only a terrific manager and top tactician, but also a brilliant bloke who goes above and beyond to give something back to the fans.

This year’s dinner celebrated the 10-year anniversary of this local charity, with the Newcastle United foundation using the ‘passion of football’ to make a difference to young people and their families in our region.

Here’s what Chris Waugh had to say about Rafa’s spontaneous act of kindness last night:
