The summer signing from Deportivo La Coruna scored a wonderful solo run from deep inside the Bluebirds half and raced unchallenged into the box and coolly steer a low effort to the left bottom corner.

The defender was on target again getting in fortuitous second for the Magpies from a corner that was headed his way to strike his knee and into the back of the net.

Benitez said: “I have said always it is not a question of a lot of money, it’s a question of doing things right at the right time.

“He’s a player who came to help and obviously he’s helping a lot. He has a lot of confidence in himself, that’s the main thing. He knows his ability and then he has a lot of confidence.

“When he is not playing, obviously he is not happy, but when he is playing, he wants to show the quality and the confidence he has.”
