The news last Saturday was that Mike Ashley went into the dressing room to congratulate the players on their first win of the season after we had beaten a very good Watford side 1-0.
Rafa talked about that in his interviews yesterday for the match today at home to the Cherries.
He said he wasn’t in the dressing room at the time – presumably having to do his post-match interviews after the terrific win.
But Rafa has revealed what Mike Ashley said to him after the game.
Mike Ashley – Newcastle owner
The owner’s comments are not surprising – he congratulated Rafa on the win and thanked him for it.
“I wasn’t there in the dressing room, but when I spoke to him he said: “Well done, congratulations – well done. Thank you.”
“He congratulated the team and then he congratulated the staff. He is welcome at the ground again this weekend; he is the owner, he can do what he wants.”
“He hasn’t been to training, but I have no problem with anyone. He is welcome any time.”
“I was expecting more questions about January today, but we have to concentrate on now and what we have to do,”
We really need to go all out for the 3 points against the Cherries, and if we can win today – we can celebrate for two weeks over the International break.
That sounds so good!!
What do you think?
