The former Arsenal player urged the Magpies to wrap the manager up in cotton wool and give him whatever he was looking for in a new contract from the club.

Keown added that Benitez was key to everything going on at the Magpies and highlighted the fact it looked like the club were set to stay in the Premier League for another season.

"They have got to wrap him in cotton wool..."

"Offer him whatever he wants as a new contract!"


“It was from the goalkeeper, to the back three, to the midfield players, right through the spine of the team and Benitez has got this magic touch.

“Done it on a shoe string, new signings come in at the right time, and they look like they will be playing Premier League football again next season.”
