Mike Ashley, the owner of Newcastle United has not yet given an indication to Rafa Benitez regarding his transfer budget for January. The billionaire was a part of the previous 6 matches of United and will be now present at St James Park to watch the AFC Bournemouth clash. He saw the Magpies achieving victory over Watford which took place last weekend. Post the game; Newcastle United owner personally congratulated the squad by visiting them at the dressing room. He also spoke with Benitez and thanked the United manager for leading a victory to Newcastle after 10 attempts in the past.
If they achieve victory against Bournemouth, they will certainly win 2 to 3 other games as well. This would make a huge difference to their season said the manager. He was keen on focusing on the need of Newcastle to back up their first win of the season with a positive outcome. Benitez has instructed his players to remain focused and achieve back-to-back victories. It is undoubtedly a tough game, but Benitez is confident that the team can do well to win. It is going to be a great confidence boost for the team and they will have plenty of chances to take part in competitions.
