According to reports from the Daily Mirror, the Newcastle United board has ordered manager Rafael Benitez to stop moaning to the media.
Newcastle United grabbed a crucial 3-0 victory over West Ham United at St. James’ Park on Saturday but the win should not cover up the fact that the Magpies still need to strengthen their squad during the final days of the transfer window in order to stand a chance of avoiding relegation.
However, manager Rafael Benitez has found it very difficult to land his main targets due to the fact that the club have not sufficiently backed him in the transfer market and as a result, the Spaniard has not been afraid to make his displeasure known publicly.
It was expected that following such an admission to the media by Benitez, club owner Mike Ashley would back his manager but instead, the 57-year-old manager has been ordered to stop moaning and to get on with the job by the billionaire.
There is certainly a lot of tension between Ashley and Benitez and it would not be a surprise if the Spaniard were to walk out on the Magpies if the situation boils over.
