Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez believes the decision to call off the proposed boycott for Sunday’s game against Wolves is a positive move.

The Magpie Group had planned to lead supporters into a boycott for the game which is live on Sky Sports - in protest at Mike Ashley’s tenure.



You talk about 52,000 or whatever number of fans of Newcastle - five million or six million fans - not all of them will have the same opinion.



It has to be good.” The Magpie Group led an 11th-minute walk-in last weekend against West Ham, which up to a 1000 fans took part-in, but that protest divided opinion with some fans claiming they were booed to their seats during the 3-0 defeat.

In the last minute, everybody was working so hard trying to get a result, I think they deserve the support, and the fans appreciate that.” News of a potential takeover emerged on Monday when Ashley took to Sky News to reveal that it is ‘possible’ he will sell the club before the January transfer window opens.

When asked if the decision to shelve it was positive, Benitez said: “It is positive because they understand the team needs support, they understand that with everyone behind the team it will be better for the long term - so I think it is quite good if we have more fans there supporting the team, and we will need them from now until the end of the season.

"In this case, I don't have too much information but normally you don't receive this information, as you [the media] say, until the end.
