Keep Rafa Benitez at NUFC

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

There are just two months before Rafa Benitez's contract as Newcastle United manager expires and - as it stands - Saturday's game against Liverpool will be the last time he manages the club at St James' Park.

For the vast majority of Newcastle fans, it is unthinkable that he might be allowed to walk away and the club would face another major period of upheaval if all the good work Rafa has done over three years comes to nothing.

So the Chronicle has launched this appeal to NUFC - and Rafa - to come to an agreement to prevent the best opportunity the club has had for years from slipping from their grasp.

We believe our readers share our feeling that Rafa represents Newcastle's best hope of progress - and there's a huge strength of feeling to keep him. Sign here to show Rafa and the club that you want him to stay.
