  • Mike Ashley wants Rafael Benitez to remain in charge at Newcastle

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley wants manager Rafa Benitez to remain at St James' Park next season.

Chelsea's terrible campaign came to an end at St. James' Park on Sunday afternoon when they were beaten 3-0 by Newcastle United and former boss Rafa Benitez.

"Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him".

Conte's side still have the incentive of silverware to play for when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final next Saturday.

"But we have six days to change our approach, our desire, our will to fight".

On the other end, Swansea needed to hit the ground running and they did in the beginning. The 19-point margin to second place Manchester United is also a record.

"I would like to thank Rafa Benitez for his magnificent achievement this season", Ashley wrote in a statement released after the game. "But I'm the first person to answer for this".

Benitez is still unclear how much he can spend in the summer and whether he will need to concentrate on loan targets or whether the club will make significant permanent signings after retaining their Premier League status.

If this was to be farewell for the former Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid head coach, his players gave him a rousing send-off, as Perez struck twice after the break to add to Gayle's first-half opener to confirm an impressive 10th-place finish in their first season back in the top flight.

"On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory".
