NEW Hearts Head Coach Ian Cathro has revealed how Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez convinced him to take the plunge into management.
He said: “Rafa was very supportive of this idea. His only thoughts were about me making sure it was the right place.
“If I felt it was right, then it was the right time. I feel this is the right place.
“There are lots of bits of advice which I’ll keep to myself because it’s personal. The biggest thing was about going to the right place.
“To start as a manager is a big step, but I’ve been ready for a while.”
Cathro will make his managerial debut against Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday.
