Newcastle boss pleas for reinforcements
Newcastle manager Raphael Benitez has urged the club hierarchy to make signings after their 2-0 loss in the fourth round of the FA cup to premier league side Watford.
‘Today is the 26th, so I don’t need to say too much. We don’t have any players here.’
Are any deals close? ‘I have no idea,’ he said.
‘A little bit of everything, but I am a professional, so I am convinced that we will do what we have to do and in the end, we will stay up.
‘But we have to concentrate and then be sure that we do the right things. Now we don’t have any excuses in terms of what we have to do.’
‘This was a strong team, strong enough,’ he said. ‘We put a team on the pitch that could win, we didn’t do it and that proved that we have to just concentrate on one competition.’
