Ghana wing wizard Christian Atsu will cherish the opportunity to work under one of the best tacticians of the game Rafael Benitez at Newcastle.
Atsu was heavily linked with Newcastle United on Thursday afternoon by Skysports and sources close to the player say the Ghana international will love to work under Benitez who won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005.

There seems to be light at the end of the tunnel with Newcastle tipped as favourites to return to the Premier League, Atsu will jump at the opportunity to work with legendary tactician Rafael Benitez.
