3 Managers Who Turned Down Newcastle Job Since The Saudi Owners Took Over

Newcastle will no longer be managed by an average manager due to the new caliber of club owners. The club are officially the richest in the world and could soon become a big name like Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

The new owners will be looking for a new manager who will take the club to the next level. The managerial position in this club will be attractive to top managers and it is not because of the money they will earn but the financial sustainability they have.

The club has a new project that will attract many managers, but some top managers do not want to work with the club yet. Nothing is impossible in the future, but at the moment these men prefer not to work in St. James' Park.

1. Brendan Rodgers.

The current Leicester City boss is not interested in Newcastle he has said he is focused on Leicester City and would like to continue with the squad as he enjoys working with them. His contract with the club runs until 2025 and he would like to see it come to fruition.

There are rumors that his preferred option is to replace Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. Pep's contract expires in 2023 and he wants to retire from club football to coach a national team.

2. Rafa Benítez.

Everton's current coach is a former Newcastle coach and as usual has been asked to reunite with his former employers. Rafa has respectfully explained that he always has a good relationship with the club and his fans, but he does not see himself at the club as he is focused on Everton and can only wish Newcastle the best.

3. José Mourinho.

I think he is one of the best men for the job and if he hadn't been to Rome it would have been a good option. He helped build Chelsea when Abramovich took over the London club, he has a lot of experience which would have been instrumental in the club's growth.

He said he was happy at Rome and the only connection he has to Newcastle is that his former boss Sir Bobby Robson has coached the club.

Which better manager is best for Newcastle and how soon do you think he will win a trophy?
