I Am Happy With Newcastle - Rafael Benitez Debunks Rumours Of West Ham Move

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has said that he remains calm over his future at Newcastle as rumours has it that the club wants him to agree a new contract. The experienced boss did not attempt to hide his frustration at the Magpies' summer transfer dealings, which left his squad seemingly lacking in depth.
That prompted repeated claims that he was ready to walk out and he was even linked with West Ham when their boss Slaven Bilic came under pressure, however Benitez told the media on Friday that he remains happy where he is.
He said “We have had some conversations internally, we'll see what we do with them, but it's not a big issue, I don't have a problem with Mike. The question is where we are, where we want to be and what we have to do to be there. It the contract is not an issue. It's not something that will change my approach, or that I will be more comfortable if I sign a 20-year-old contract. It doesn't change my approach for the next game. Are we working for the January transfer window? Yes, we are already working on that. Like the majority of the teams, we are monitoring players and that is the main thing. There will be a time, maybe next month, maybe next week, maybe in two months, when we will have another conversation and we will talk about that. I love my job. That is to coach, to improve players and to create a team that is competitive and can win games. Then I have to enjoy it, for sure. Two weeks ago, when I was lying down on the sofa, I was not very happy. Now I can be on the pitch, I am quite happy.”
