“We were all happy and now we have nine games left which he will bring his experience to and we can be in the Premier League next season with him.”
Benitez is big-time having plied his trade at the likes of Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea and Inter Milan.
Sissoko says his experience can only help the club stage a dramatic turnaround.
He said: “He has worked with some very good teams. We need to listen to what he says because he is one of the best managers in the world. We need to follow him.
“I believe in my team mates, manager, everyone and we are a good team. We will stay in the Premier League.”
The 26-year-old, who joined the Geordies three years ago, also says he is confident they will avoid relegation with Benitez on board.
He added: “We trained three sessions with him. It was short but good. He brings his experience and we will work again this week. He can help us to stay in the Premier League next season.
