Rafa Benitez has insisted he will not walk away from Newcastle after the club failed to make any signings during the January transfer window.
Rafa Benitez had been hoping to sign former Magpies winger Andros Townsend from Crystal Palace on Deadline Day, but a deal failed to materialise before the close of the transfer window.
“We have finished the transfer window and we have a good squad and I have confidence in them. My priority is to make sure we are ready for the next game against Derby, that’s it,” he said, who signed a new three-year deal in the summer.
“I will not quit, I will not leave because I am happy or not happy. I am ready to fight and to try and get the three points in the next game to get promotion at the end of the season.”
“I have a compromise, especially with the fans as they’ve been pushing from the beginning to help me enjoy my job,” he added.
“I am just trying to make sure the players, the staff and everyone is pushing in the same direction. So, we need the fans and the experience with this club has been quite complicated for the fans, owner, players and staff.
“We cannot make the same mistakes. We all have to push in the same direction and at every game, with everybody available, that we are giving 100 per cent.
“At the end of the season, I expect us to win promotion and we will enjoy and be happy. We cannot be blaming each other now after the transfer window, we have to be sure that we concentrate on getting three points from every game.”
