Rafa Benitez Mitrovic still divides opinion on Tyneside.

And the striker was in the thick of it for 45 minutes at the AOK Stadion.

Mitrovic missed an early chance, got booked for tangling with goalkeeper Max Grun and opened the scoring.

All in an afternoon's work.

Benitez, we know, is desperate to bring in another striker in this summer's transfer window.

But right now Mitrovic and Dwight Gayle are all he has. And that's not enough.

Benitez has often spoke about Mitrovic's on-field discipline, and he momentarily lost his temper against Wolfsburg.

That can't happen in the Premier League.
