Even Rafa Benitez won’t save doomed Toon
RAFA BENITEZ is now odds-on to replace Steve McClaren at Newcastle but even the Champions League winner won’t save the Magpies from relegation, according to Ladbrokes.
The former Liverpool and Real Madrid manager is now 1/4 to take charge at St James’ Park before the end of the season and 2/1 to be unveiled prior to Monday night’s visit to Leicester.
However, it all looks to be too little, too late with odds of 4/9 suggesting the Spaniard will be unable to halt the club’s slide into the Championship.
James Curtis of Ladbrokes said: "We fully expect Rafa to replace the Wally with the Brolly in the next few days but we’re less convinced about his ability to retain Newcastle’s top flight status.”
