After a video went viral of Jack Waddle meeting Rafa Benitez and giving the gaffer a little pat on the cheek, the young NUFC fan and his family have been invited to meet the squad at the club’s training ground today.
It may just be a little thing, but this will have meant absolutely everything to Jack and his family – with Rafa clearly adding a little personal touch by giving him a little tour of his own.
Here’s a clip, shared by the club’s official Twitter page just moments ago:
This is the sort of thing I love about Rafa Benitez. His genius when it comes to our fortunes on the pitch are second to none, but these are the little things he’s happy to get involved with to give back to Newcastle fans.
Heart warming footage and another reminder of why we MUST keep the Spaniard at the club this summer!
