Rafa Benitez declaring: ‘I was really pleased to see Matty Longstaff scoring the winning goal for Newcastle; he was great when he was training with us and it was a good decision from Steve Bruce to make him play.’ Rafa also commented on three products of the Newcastle United Academy being on the pitch at the same time in Sunday’s win: ‘I was also happy to see a few Geordies playing together at the same time; Carroll, Sean and Matty; surely it shouldn’t be difficult to see the benefits of investing in the Academy?’ When it comes to the Academy, this was one of the main sticking points for Rafa Benitez when wanting to stay at Newcastle United and push the whole club forward.

Rafa Benitez has been talking about Newcastle United’s victory over Manchester United.



The former NUFC boss praising Steve Bruce for giving Matty Longstaff his Premier League debut.



To reinforce that point of investing in the Academy upwards, Rafa Benitez says: ‘£4m every year for 10 years means £40 m (one player); one ‘Longstaff’ every year for ten years seems good business to me.’ The former manager pointing to the fact that proper investment in the Academy (£4m per year) and facilities could see a first team player coming through each season on average, comparing this to spending £40m on a single player from outside (Joelinton?).

“I was really pleased to see Matty Longstaff scoring the winning goal for Newcastle; he was great when he was training with us and it was a good decision from Steve Bruce to make him play.
