Sky Sports reject Richard Keys has launched an unbelievable attack on Rafa Benitez following the Spaniard’s damning comments on the situation at Newcastle United this week – stating he should ‘Shut up’ or ‘walk’.
This isn’t the first time Keys – who was sacked by Sky several years ago for sexist remarks – has had a pop at Rafa, with him clearly having something against the Spaniard, having no sympathy for his current situation and all the support in the world for none other than Mike Ashley.
Here’s his incredible Twitter rant at Rafa today in response to his quotes stating he was ‘really worried’ about the current situation at NUFC:
“Shut up Rafa – or walk – which is your right.
“The club will survive you.
“Mike Ashley isn’t going to change for you.
“He was right last season – you had more than enough.”
Shut up Rafa – or walk – which is your right. https://t.co/yVo28nq7O8 The club will survive you. Mike Ashley isn’t going to change for you. He was right last season – you had more than enough.

Utter lies and a total lack of respect once again from Keys.
A reminder – here’s what he said about Benitez back in May after he delivered a 10th place finish for NUFC:
“Well done Rafa. It turns out Mike Ashley was right after all.
“After spending £102m on 18 players the previous season Ashley always believed Benitez had enough to make Newcastle comfortable. He did. Now comes Rafa’s big test.
“I’m tired of reading about his threats to leave if he doesn’t get his own way. He won’t get his own way.
“I’ve no idea where Benitez will find a better job – because he certainly wouldn’t enjoy working at West Ham.
“We’re in for some big changes in the dug outs this summer – more changes than we’ve ever seen.
“As owners go searching for men with a magic wand here’s something to think about.
“It remains the case – and always will – that the teams with the best players are going to be successful. Be careful what you wish for…..”
Moronic and childish comments from a man who seems to just enjoy being purposefully controversial.
The Katie Hopkins of the football world.
