Rafael Benitez ruled out of Swansea City trip

:Headline: Rafael Benitez ruled out of Swansea City trip:
Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez is confirmed out for the Magpies' trip to Swansea City this afternoon.
By , Editor-in-chief | 1y

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez will not travel with his side for their game at Swansea City this afternoon, the club have confirmed.

The 57-year-old missed training and pre-match media duties this week after surgery on a groin problem, resulting from a prior operation on a hernia.

The Magpies had arranged for a helicopter to take Benitez from his home on Merseyside to South Wales, but the Spaniard was still feeling too unwell to travel today.

In a statement on Twitter, Newcastle said: "We can confirm that Rafa Benítez will not be at the Liberty Stadium today as he recovers from an operation. #GetWellSoonRafa

"The team will be led by Rafa's coaching staff, who will be in contact with the manager throughout matchday.

"Everyone at the club wishes Rafa a speedy recovery."

Benitez's side claimed their first points of the season last time out courtesy of a 3-0 victory over rock-bottom West Ham United.
