Rio Ferdinand is in rough weather after he Saturday defended Newcastles controversial owner Mike Ashley.
the Owner is far from popular with the fans, and has long been accused of not caring about the club and its future in the English toppfotball.
Therefore, provoked the resentment when Ferdinand believed that the fans should thank Ashley for the way he has managed the club. The former Manchester United player is accused to protect their own interests.Sell clothing at Ashley
Ferdinand sell-namely, his own clothing line, "Five", through the Newcastle owner's chain, Sports Direct.
Ferdinand works as a pundit for BT Sports, and was confronted with this before he came with his defense of Ashley.
- I don't know him so well really. I want to get to know him. My problem has nothing to do with forretningsavtalene I have with his company, " said Ferdinand.
When they relegated, he spent 50 million pounds of their own money to get them up again, continued the previous passion, commitment, but was quickly arrested by the presenter, Jake Humphrey, who pointed out that it was the club's own money that had been used in the process.- Should thank Ashley
In a time where the majority of Premier League clubs closest to throwing money after new players at every opportunity, have Newcastle only used in excess of 20 million, net page to promote in 2017.
Ashley has been accused of just put the money in their own pockets, but Ferdinand believes that the fans should be grateful to Ashley who is now trying to sell the club to Peter Kenyon.Earn 40 million a year: - I don't Know where he is
- They should thank Ashley. Look at Sunderland who had only 1.2 million pounds to spend after they relegated to the Championship. And they also owes Mike Ashley a huge thank you to have brought in Rafa Benitez, " said Ferdinand, who once again was corrected by the program leader. It was in fact Benitez who got in touch with Newcastle about the vacant managerjobben and not vice versa.
They got him anyway. Newcastle have been a jojo-club through the years. Now he does not want to invest more. He has already done it, and will not do it anymore. Why should he spend several million pounds? What if he spends 30 million on a midfielder and 30 million on a striker and they get damaged? There are 60 million wasted.
In the aftermath have not people been gracious in their judgment of the Ferdinands opinions.- Incredibly ignorant
Journalist Daniel Storey does not buy the Ferdinands explanations around Newcastles financial situation, and I think Ashley deserves a little credit for that the club was promoted again from the Championship in 2017.the Highlights in the career of Alan Shearer: - the Feeling sent shivers down the spine
Ferdinand says Mike Ashley spent 50 million of his own money for that Newcastle should be promoted. It is categorically not true. The money was earned by the club itself. In the Championship the season used Newcastle 55 million on new players. At the same time, they sold Moussa Sissoko for 30 million, Georginio Wijnaldum for 25 million and Andros Townsend for 14 million, plus some. Sorry, but Ferdinand says it is a myth, writes Storey on Twitter.
He also believes that it is wrong to stamp Newcastle as a jojo-club, as Ferdinand did, and points out that they've only turned down two times through the story.
- Completely embarrassing of Ferdinand. Either he is incredibly ignorant or he is uoppriktig with the will of god, writes journalist Nooruddean Choudry on Twitter. You can watch the video where Ferdinand and presenter Humphrey discusses Newcastle in the message below.
