Benitez missed the Premier League trip to Swansea as he recovered from an operation but was well enough to issue instructions to his skipper, who responded with a match-winning performance at both ends.
JAMAAL LASCELLES is hoping Newcastle United's 1-0 win at Swansea City will have provided the flawless pick-me-up to the club's under-the-weather manager Rafael Benitez. "He's a fantastic player and I think he will be one of the most exciting players in the league".
"With Matt Ritchie's delivery, it is on a plate every time".
"I'm very disappointed with the way that we played because although the margin of defeat is very small, ultimately decided by a set-play, for me the difference in the two teams in the performance was much greater than that".
"He has been active in the game and kept in touch with us throughout the game".
Gamez was signed up by Rafa Benitez last summer from Atletico Madrid but injury plagued his first season a St. James' Park as he only managed to earn seven appearances across all competitions while also finding himself behind DeAndre Yedlin in the right-back pecking order.
"This is definitely what we wanted to deliver to Rafa", said Paco, who is effectively Benitez's number two despite having the official title of fitness coach. "He was watching and hopefully gets well and can be back with us soon". "I'm finding it hard to understand why I saw what I saw", he said.
Newcastle's defensive display was the key to their success, with Swansea restricted to a handful of chances despite dominating possession for long periods. He'll run, go at you, he makes decisions to go at you, has a low centre of gravity.
