Newcastle players shun media in dispute with club over bonuses

Newcastle boss Benitez has cut a frustrated figure in pre-season despite last month declaring he would like to stay on Tyneside for "five or 10 years" provided the club's ownership supports him in improving the squad.

"As I say things aren't going well off the pitch and you can see a reflection".

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has revealed he is anxious about the progress the club are making throughout the summer transfer window.

They are in disagreement with the club over bonuses they will receive for the upcoming season, and now they've started to protest.

Venezuela worldwide Rondon becomes Benitez's sixth summer recruit, following on from the signings of Martin Dubravka, Kenedy, Yoshinori Muto, Fabian Schar and Ki Sung-yeung.




But Benitez clearly feels more must be done, adding: "I am not happy we are looking to just survive every year".

Selling Aleksandar Mitrovic should raise the funds to bring in Yoshinori Muto and, possibly, Salomon Rondon in attack.

As Newcastle United supporters will tell you, when it comes to their club, nothing is ever simple.

Mainz director of sports Rouven Schroeder said the club had respected the player's wish to play in the Premier League. The Venezuelan striker has not scored more than ten goals in any of his three seasons at West Brom but s the type of striker who contributes elsewhere in attack and will facilitate other attackers coming into play.

While Benitez is disappointed to have lost a key ally in his former press officer Wendy Taylor, who has joined the Football Association where she will work alongside Phil Neville and the England women's team, he hopes to keep his captain and centre-half Jamaal Lascelles who is interesting Everton.
