Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for November after guiding the Magpies to three consecutive wins
Newcastle had failed to register a single win in the 2018-19 season going into the month, but a nine-point haul helped move them away from the relegation zone.
“It’s always good to win trophies – I would obviously like to win more manager of the month awards, as that means we’re in a better position in the table,” Benitez said.
“It’s good for the staff too, everyone that is helping you because it gives you extra motivation.”
However Newcastle have since embarked on a three-match winless run but can get back on track with a win against Huddersfield away on Saturday.
