Ex-Bayern Munich boss linked with NUFC job should Benitez leave this summer

According to  France Football, Newcastle could turn to Jurgen Klinsmann should Rafa Benitez fail to agree a new contract at St James’ Park this summer.

The former Bayern Munich and Germany boss has been out of work since leaving his role as the USA national coach in 2016 and has recently ruled himself out of the running for the Hertha Berlin job.

Klinsmann is one of several managers to be linked with the job should Rafa leave, with us seeing Lyon’s Bruno Genesio, ex-Benfica boss Jorge Jesus and former Huddersfield man David Wagner all tipped to takeover on Tyneside in recent months.

The Chronicle have since reported that ‘dozens of calls and emails’ have came in at the club suggesting potential successors to Rafa, however they insist that the powers that be are completely focused on keeping Benitez.

It’s constantly being reported that the club’s hierarchy want to keep Rafa, yet Benitez has stated for several weeks now that he’s waiting for answers – so just what is going on?

It should be an easy decision and a quick response from Mike Ashley, with us at risk of losing a world-class manager, but you get the feeling both he and Lee Charnley aren’t open to too much of a compromise.
