When it was announced that Spanish manager Rafael Benitez would be leaving St James’ Park at the end of his contract, many Newcastle fans couldn’t believe what they were reading.

In a questionable move by owner Mike Ashley, the manager was allowed to leave the club having steered Newcastle away from relegation over the past 2 seasons.

Since the news broke The Chronicle have been profiling potential managers to succeed Benitez at the Toon, with their latest profile being focused on Burnley boss Sean Dyche. The profile was met with some backlash from many Newcastle fans still aggrieved about the decision to let Benitez go, with their anger directed towards one man.

Focusing on Dyche, he guided Burnley from the Championship all the way to Europa League qualifying while on a shoestring budget. Dyche’s achievements still do not impress a lot of Newcastle United fans, who think the job is a poisoned chalice.
