Benitez deserves criticism for Newcastle tactics against Chelsea, says Quinn

first_img Rafa Benitez came under-fire for his approach to the Chelsea game Rafael Benitez got his approach all wrong against Chelsea on Sunday.That’s the view of former Newcastle striker Micky Quinn, with the talkSPORT presenter saying the Spaniard had no reason to play so defensively at home against the Blues. 1 With an ultra-defensive approach, the Magpies had just 19 per cent possession and were beaten 2-1 to leave them winless in three Premier League matches this season.Benitez launched a defiant defence of his tactics after the match, claiming “possession means nothing” but, though Quinn is a big fan of the Newcastle boss, he was baffled by the way he set out his side to play at St James’ Park.“At home you expect a bit more possession and more chances,” he said, speaking on the Sports Breakfast.“I love Newcastle, I love the fans, in Rafa we trust is the motto up there, but yesterday he got it wrong.“It wasn’t Man City, it was Chelsea and if they would have had a go they might have caused an upset. They got beat so his tactics didn’t work.“There is a lot more going on with the chairman and fans wanting him [Mike Ashley] out but they need to start winning football matches.“The next game is Manchester City and I don’t want to get into a situation where another two, three games down the line they are struggling to win matches and then all of a sudden are back to a relegation slot.“As much as we love Rafa and the fans love Rafa, no manager should fall short of any criticism when you are not winning football matches.” “In Rafa we trust… but he got it wrong!”@MickQuinn1089 says Rafa Benitez let the #NUFC fans down by parking the bus at home to Chelsea yesterday 😞Is it ever OK for a home side to park the bus? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/zgzbFLwu02— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) August 27, 2018last_img read more
