Chris Mort was delighted with the win over local rivals Sunderland yesterday.
Chris Mort – Newcastle Chariman will negotiate with Michael’s representatives
Chris Mort is the one who will be negotiating Michaelâ€™s new contract from the Newcastle side and he said today:
â€œAs we have said all along, we are obviously keen for Michael to stay.â€
â€œHeâ€™s a fabulous player and he showed that again.â€
â€œNow we are looking forward to sitting down with his team and working out an agreement for him to stay at Newcastle United.â€
Mike Ashley went into the Newcastle dressing room after the game and he was ecstatic with the victory. We have to admit we’ve never seen the Newcastle Owner so happy as he was after the win.
Chris Mort continued:
â€œAs I have said all along, Mike has been very clear from the outset.â€ â€œHe wants me to run the club and he wants to enjoy his football on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.â€
â€œHe enjoys supporting the club in every aspect. Lots of fans have a quick beer before a game, and he was no exception yesterday. And after the game he went down to the dressing-room to say well done to the players and Kevin.â€
â€œObviously, Iâ€™m thrilled with the result,â€ â€œTo go in at half-time against your biggest rivals 2-0 up was a great experience.â€
It’s great to have an owner with the passion of a Newcastle United supporter. Just imagine what he’s going to be like if Kevin builds another fantastic side, that could even challenge for the Premier League and other trophies.
We don’t think that’s too far away.
