Magpies supporters are still angry with the club for allowing Rafa Benitez to leave but have now reacted negatively on Twitter to reports suggesting who could be set to come in as Rafa’s replacement.
Benitez spent three years as the manager and according to reports in The Sun, had a one-year extension offer from the club. However, the 59-year-old was unable to agree to the terms on offer and will leave the club once his current contract expires at the end of the month.
Ranieri was fired by Fulham in November but took over at Roma in March on a short-term deal but has since left the club. Van Bronckhorst is also currently out of work after leaving Dutch side Feyenoord this summer…
Former Feyenoord boss Giovanni Van Bronckhorst & Premier League winner Claudio Ranieri are two of the names that have expressed an interest in replacing departing Newcastle boss Rafa Benítez #NUFC

Whoever comes in will find it impossible to follow Rafa. Rafa had 52000 fans behind him, and to let him go means this job will be impossible to fill now. Nobody will get that respect from the fans. No-one. This club will go down next season and stay there. Thanks Mike, u buffoon
