Rafa Benitez has warning for Newcastle forward Aleksandar Mitrovic

“It is not easy for me deciding who plays”

“It is not easy for me deciding who plays,” said the Spaniard, who doesn’t announce his team until an hour before kick-off.

“Mitro was really unlucky to be suspended for the first three games of the season because Gayle did so well.

“But he is working hard in training sessions – and sometimes he is working too hard.”

Though not a regular, Mitrovic’s questionable temperament and poor discliplinary record means Benitez and his staff are spending plenty of time with the Serb.
