New­cas­tle still in need of re­cruits

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PRE­MIER LEAGUE: New­cas­tle man­ager Rafael Ben­itez will con­tinue his search for new play­ers de­spite see­ing his team fi­nally open their league ac­count with a 3-0 vic­tory over West Ham at St James’ Park.

A first goal from summer sign­ing Joselu and two more from Ciaran Clark and Alek­san­dar Mitro­vic se­cured a win to dis­pel some of the dis­quiet on Ty­ne­side.

How­ever, Ben­itez re­mains adamant that fur­ther ad­di­tions to his squad are im­per­a­tive if he is to keep the club in the top flight.

Asked if he still needed to do busi­ness ahead of Thurs­day’s trans­fer dead­line, the Spa­niard said: “Yes, we have to. Noth­ing changed in the first two games and noth­ing has changed now.

“We have a clear idea of what we want to do and will try to do it. I don’t know if we can do every­thing. We will try to do the main things if we can.”
