Pic: Newcastle fans rolled out this brilliant Rafa Benitez flag at the Glastonbury festival today

There are football managers who are usually well respected by their clubs’ fans, and then there is Rafael Benitez, whose clout among his support base knows absolutely no boundaries.

Ever since his decision to stay on at Newcastle and helping his side gain promotion back to the Premier League despite failure to do so during his first attempt in charge, the Spaniard has conquered his place in the heart of Toons fans permanently.

From quirky requests of Benitez pictures in hotel rooms, to massive banners in his honour, fans have gone to great extent in showing love for the manager.

And the latest show of endorsement for the Newcastle boss was on display during the ongoing Glastonbury festival in Somerset, where two Magpies faithfuls unfurled a large flag showing Benitez’s face before the large stage and screens.
