“I asked his advice about some things, because obviously he knows the city, the club and the fans – everything.

“I asked him, ‘What is dangerous if we make some mistakes?’ and he said we’re going in the right direction.”

But Benitez warned his players they will come unstuck if they under-estimate the Tykes at Oakwell, where Newcastle will be backed by a sell-out 6,000 travelling fans.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side are winless in five games, but Benitez insisted: “It’s a dangerous game for us. They are a good team who score a lot of goals.”
