Will Rafa And Fat Boy Kiss And Make Up?

January was problematic for Rafa Benitez and Newcastle.

Trust was eroded by what happened in that month, when United did not recruit.

But it was solved by what was a frank meeting in which Benitez presented a detailed business plan to the owner.

The relationship now is unlikely to be patched up by talking.

Benitez feels promises have been broken; Ashley contends otherwise.

The trust has disappeared and it’s difficult to see a way back from here.

But both men know that legally they have a responsibility to say the right things to avoid an even uglier fall-out.

What happens with both men now is going to be fascinating because there is so much at stake.
