Kevin Keegan has written an autobiography called ‘My Life In Football,’ and he has attacked Newcastle owner Mike Ashley in the book.
There are some quotes today in the Sun from Keegan about the Newcastle owner he worked for in 2008 for only eight months before he walked out in early September of that year.
That was because the Director of Football Dennis Wise had brought in two players he didn’t know were even arriving.
Let’s just say it’s clear Keegan has absolutely no time for Mike Ashley.

Here are some comments from Kevin in the Sun today from his autobiography:
“They (Mike Ashley and company) have made a toy out of Newcastle.”
“As much as it pains me to say it, I have no desire to be associated with the place for as long as that continues.”
“I will gladly return when they have gone.”
“I look forward to the day when Newcastle is free of the man who has lurched from one bad decision to another.”
“He’s run an empire of self-harm and handed money and power to people who deserved neither.”
“I don’t want to share my oxygen with these people.”
The two players Dennis Wise had brought in were Spanish striker Xisco and Uruguayan Ignacio Gonzalez on loan – both became disastrous signings for the club.
