The management of Newcastle United on Monday disclosed that the club’s manager, Rafael Benitez will leave at the end of the month.
A club statement said Newcastle had wanted to tie Benitez down to a new contract but it was unsuccessful.
According to the club, it was with disappointment that it announced that Benítez would be leaving Newcastle United upon the expiration of his contract on June 30.
The club also added that Benitez’s coaching staff, Paco de Míguel Moreno, Antonio Gómez Pérez and Mikel Antia, would also leave with him.
The statement reads:“We have worked hard to extend Rafa’s contract over a significant period of time, however it has not been – and will not be – possible to reach an agreement with Rafa and his representatives.
“We would like to thank Rafa and his coaching team for their efforts over the last three years and their significant contribution to what has been collectively achieved.
“We would also like to thank our supporters, players and staff for their patience during a period of uncertainty. The process to appoint a successor will now begin.”
