L’Equipe – Bruno Genesio Was Choice Of New Takeover Group


There is a very strange report from L’Equipe that Mike Ashley has turned down a deal of €400m from another Emirati group that had involvement from Peter Kenyon.

It does not appear that this group is connected to the Bin Zayed Group or their reported takeover.

The report has comments attributed to Bruno Genesio’s agent saying that he was the choice of the group to become the manager if the takeover occurred.

This is what the L’Equipe report states that Genesio’s agent Pini Zahavi has stated:

“He was their candidate. We will find something else for Bruno.”

We have to wonder what is going on with the reports from France today and if they are just getting partial information. This could explain the report from Le Progres which stated that Genesio was due to be appointed.

The report also dubiously claims that Michael Chopra led a group in a failed takeover as well. This no doubt arises from his comments on talkSPORT this morning where Chopra claimed he put a Saudi group in touch with Lee Charnley about their interest in buying Newcastle.

Unfortunately, all of this seems to be just speculation based on unsubstantiated claims. Unless something else more substantial comes to light, all signs point to a Steve Bruce appointment.

    Massively underwhelmed if Bruce is to be the new manager, I’m a little confused aswell though by the vitriol against him on here. Yes Rafa didn’t stay but he decided that, as transfer sage rightly stated a few posts back……rafa highlighted why he wouldn’t stay and then went to china which completely contradicts the very reason why he didn’t stay here.

    I said from the beginning that I’ll support bruce, heck if I could support pardew and McClaren, Carver, Kinnear etc then I wont be shooting bruce before a balls been kicked. More than anything all this nonsense plays right into Ashley’s hands, he couldn’t careless what our opinions are, chaos and disruption is what he likes and he gets it everyday on here.

    I dont like the appointment if made but I also think all this anger and hatred toward Bruce is not like us as fans, it wont happen but hypothetically speaking……if Bruce does a very good job, if he gets us into the top 10 or even keeps us up for example will all those who are wanting to hang him going to keep the nonsense going or will they suddenly jump on the bandwagon of supporting him?

    Direct your anger at Ashley and only ashley, bruce like countless others is a shield for Ashley to hide behind. #boycott the whole season
    #support the team from a far

    Tony you sir are a first class tosspot. Why dont you do us all a favour and go shag ya nanna. If you have nothing to add constructively just do one. Is there not some second rate mls blog you can jump on and bore the tits off? Your boring, just because people on here have shared what they have heard, myself included, and it hasnt came to fruition, doesnt mean it was all made up. You are a tit

    Surprise surprise Asslee has decided to stay put and bring in his own choice of manager, He of the nose like a blind cobblers thumb.

    The would be purchasers must have thought they were close to owning a great football club until our delightful owner yet again couldn’t bear the thought of relinquishing ownership.

    It’s a shame fella, most on here support the club and I for one really hoped it was going to go through this time.

    I do get told quite a bit, again if I am told anything and it’s safe to do so – I will share it.

    The club is a mess at the minute, maybe that light at the end of the tunnel is starting to fade.

    Like I have said on numerous times, believe or disbelieve – it matters not to me.

    Our Toon (and Sage)

    Basically Rafa didn’t re-up with us because he realized he can’t trust Ashley. What in him going to China contradicts that?

    I bet if Ashley would have presented a proper plan and commit to it, Rafa would have signed up – something like:

    “There is a 50M investment budget for 2019/20 plus what is raised from player sales. 50% of the budget can go to transfers, the other 50% into the facilities fund for training and academy improvements. You can buy Rondon even though I don’t like his age but the rest needs to be on under 26 players. Same plan for 2020/2021. Finish as high up the table as you can.”

    That plan would probably also have got us a Viera or Arteta or any proper respectable manager – established or up and coming.

    But this isn’t how Ashley looks at Newcastle.

    So knowing that why should Rafa stay at Ashley United and why the bitter comments about China? Not like his career will be over in 3 years time. Bet you he will be back in Europe and he will have earned enough to set his family up for generations.

    Boycott NUFC.

    Attend a game and prove your life is meaningless.

    You could spend that time with friends, family, fellow fans away from the ground, anybody you love, other fans, your dog, cat…

    Listen, you will spend a VERY short amount of time on this rock that we call Earth, aimlessly floating through space. Make a choice. Think about what matters in your life, what truly matters, what brings you joy, happiness, what makes you proud… Spend your small amount of time on these things… Newcastle United is DEAD.

    BoycottNUFC.
