Rafa Benitez visited numerous landmarks around the North
East, making the most of a scheduled day off from training. With nine wins out
of ten for Newcastle United in all competitions, Rafa was certainly spreading
the positivity across the region.
On Tuesday morning at Pulman Volkswagen Durham Rafa made an
appearance to the surprise of many in the showroom. Group Fleet Director Paul
Adams comments, “We are delighted to have renewed our partnership once again
with Newcastle United and we’re looking forward to exploring further unique
opportunities that our relationship with the football club brings.”
For the 7th consecutive year Pulman Volkswagen

Durham and Sunderland, Pulman have been working closely with the Magpies,
supplying cars from its extensive fleet of brand new Volkswagen’s.

The brand new Tiguan was the perfect choice for Rafa’s new
car. With Four-wheel drive capability and class leading safety technology
including Front Assist, City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring, it assures
anyone driving a Tiguan will be prepared for winter and those icy roads.
Rafa Benitez commented on driving the new Tiguan, “When I go
home on the motorway it is a really comfortable ride, and when I drive in the
city it reacts and responds really well on the road.”
Natalie Wilson, Marketing Manager for Pulman comments: “We
are so thankful to Rafa Benitez and Newcastle United. The time Rafa spent with
everyone in the showroom on the day was truly fantastic, taking the time to meet
and take photos with everyone. It was great having a chat with Rafa in our Café
Dafté as well, getting some inside knowledge on football formations.”
