A Newcastle fan came across a Rafa Benítez lookalike in a local shop in Brighton after a 1-1 draw between the two sides at the Amex on Saturday.

With the club now safe from relegation, thoughts have turned to securing the services of their manager who has entered the final two months of his contract.

The supporter engaged the shopkeeper in a bit of light-hearted banter, calling him Rafa and asking if he would be remaining at St. James’ Park.

The Rafa Benítez lookalike gives him a thumbs up and confirmation that he, indeed, would be staying at the club.
