ALTERED 2 He is said to have hamstrung Benitez by forcing a sell-to-buy policy on the ex-Liverpool boss, whereas the Spaniard thought he would originally have around £45million to spend to strengthen ahead of the new season.Ashley and Lee Charnley, the club’s managing director, have been closely involved in Newcastle’s transfer business over the past decade, which is why it has been easy to blame the pair for their lack of signings.However Allardyce, who was Newcastle manager when Ashley bought the club in 2007, believes Benitez has full control over transfers, the first time a Magpies boss has been awarded this freedom since he left St James’ Park in early 2008.“Newcastle are not trying to get rid of Rafa Benitez,” Allardyce told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, “not at all.“I think what’s happened, in my limited understanding, is that Mike Ashley has always said Rafa can have every penny the club generates, and that he can use that in the transfer market how he sees fit.“So clearly Rafa, for the first time at Newcastle, is in charge of his own recruitment.“I was in charge of my own recruitment at Newcastle, but after that there were always other people in charge of recruitment at Newcastle – not the manager. I think Rafa’s got the say verbatim on what players come in and go out now, which has not been the case before at Newcastle.

And that is something the Newcastle fans should look forward to.“But what is expected at Newcastle is beyond the real expectation and the reality they can do; they always want that little bit more.”Given the heavy spending of the clubs who finished around Newcastle last season, as well as those who won promotion from the Championship, it is no surprise the St James’ Park faithful are worried about the Magpies’ chances of top flight survival.“I think they’ll be concerned,” Allardyce continued, “because once other clubs go past your spending it makes life difficult for Rafa to do better than he did last season.“Newcastle have been into the transfer market, but when you look at the new clubs who have come up that have exceeded their spending, that will concern Rafa and it will concern the Newcastle fans.
