Townsend is reunited with Everton boss Rafael Benitez, who he played under at Newcastle.

I think that who is in the objective case in the non-restrictive relative clause who he played under at Newcastle?

Am I correct?

From the viewpoint of semantics, yes, but from the viewpoint of syntax 'who' is a subject case form, and 'whom' is an objective case form.

Close: it's the object of under, and therefore the objective case whom is more correct (but also more formal).
