Next Chelsea manager: Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez discusses Blues target

On a less positive note, he added: "On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory".

"We're safe - we're more than safe, we're 10th, so the season has been really positive and I am looking forward to starting the new season".

Rafa Benitez has been discussing his future as Newcastle United manager after guiding the club to 10th in the Premier League in their first season back in the division.

After beating Chelsea 3-0 on the final day of the 2017-18 Premier League season, Benitez was pressed on his future, with major managerial jobs - including Arsenal - available this summer.

Owner Mike Ashley is desperate for him to stay having once again promised him "every penny generated by the club".

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Newcastle United", said Kenedy.

"Finally, I would like to thank the fans for their unrivalled support of Rafa and the team throughout the season".

However, he has made no secret of his desire to see his ambition matched by the club if he is to stay, a theme to which he returned immediately after the game.

The delay had prompted President Muhammadu Buhari to issue a deadline to heads of all MDAs to defend their budgets unfailingly. The report was laid by Danjuma Goje , Chairman of the Senate Appropriation Committee and seconded by Senator Matthew Uroghide.

"But it's different. You need to talk to the player and then decide".

Benitez said: "If we want to achieve something, we have to understand the way to do that".

"After that, you must have that so-called winning mentality because when you're under pressure, those with more experience can make the difference". Maybe they will help you attract a player who turns out to be a key player.

"It is easy to see what we have, now we need to do something more and be a little bit better".

Benitez led Napoli to their last piece of silverware - the Supercoppa in 2014, courtesy of a 6-5 penalties victory over Juventus - and had been linked with a second spell at the helm if Maurizio Sarri left the club.

Shelvey has impressed in the middle of the park for the Magpies this season, helping them survive in the Premier League following promotion past year.

"I would give him the backing he deserves".
