Newcastle United Billionaire owner Mike Ashley says the club is not for sale, after freely admitting he is just loving life as a new fan of Newcastle United football club.
Looks like Mike cannot get enough of the passion that is Newcastle United, and he seems to be lapping it up.
So much so that Mike has recently decided to buy a trophy cabinet for the club – as a new strategic move in his overall strategy for Newcastle. Rumor has it he consulted with both Big Sam and Chris Mort before deciding on the move. 😀
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley – in somber mood, looks like we just conceded a goal
Mike bought the club in June, but there has been constant media speculation that he will be selling the club. Most of this rubbish has come from the gossip papers â€“ which we tend to ignore.
The English billionaire businessman has dispelled the rumors by saying he wants to get a trophy cabinet and then start filling it with â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..you guessed it â€“ trophies.
Mike said today:
“For the record, this club is not for sale,” “Selling is just not on the agenda.â€
“Yes, there have been plenty of people suggesting they want to buy the club off me already and the answer is always the same: ‘No!â€™â€
“I didn’t buy Newcastle United to sell it. I bought this club to become part of its passion. And it has worked. I feel at home here already. I love the place, the club and especially the fans. Who wouldn’t?”
“I want to have fun and win some trophies.â€ “That’s the first aim – to get trophies in the cabinet. However, first of all we have to get a trophy cabinet!”
The Newcastle fans have taken to Mike big time since he made his first appearance at a game at Middlesbrough, wearing the famous black and white striped shirt. He can be seen regularly cheering on the team â€“ just like any other supporter. Mike has now become a firm regular at St. James’ Park and can be seen enjoying the game – but always in his black and white strip.
Mike is like any other Newcastle fan â€“ he yearns for a trophy and success â€“ and hey – once we get a cabinet weâ€™ll probably need to fill it.Â But first things first and Mike has decided to first buy the cabinet – good thinking. 😀
Comments on how to fill the cabinet are very welcome.
