Newcastle United are enjoying their week after bringing an end to their winless streak by edging past Watford at the weekend.
Ayoze Perez scored the only goal of the game as Newcastle picked up three points in the Premier League at the 11th time of asking this season, which establishes a platform to build upon heading into the coming weeks.
Off the field, Newcastle have celebrated 10 years of the Newcastle Foundation this week and Rafael Benitez was amongst the many guests in attendance – earning praise for an action he made after the evening’s awards.
As reported by The Chronicle journalist Chris Waugh, Benitez invited all of the winners to attend a Newcastle training session and earned praise for going above and beyond – with fans soon piling in with their own plaudits.
Despite the struggles this season, Benitez remains as popular as ever on Tyneside and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Proud to have him as our manager, best since Sir Bobby without shadow of a doubt
