Newcastle Owner Ashley Backs New Boss Benitez To Retain Premiership Status


Newcastle owner Mike Ashley believes they have the best man in charge in Rafael Benitez, as they look to avoid Premier League relegation.

In an exclusive interview with Sky News, the Sports Direct boss insisted that the arrival of former Chelsea and Liverpool manager Benitez in place of Steve McClaren has given the club the best possible chance of staying in the top tier.

“I think we’ve got the right man in the job,” said Ashley, who has spent over £60m on new players this season.

“If there’s any chance of us staying up – let’s hope Rafa can do the business and keep us up.”

But, despite the criticism levelled and poor performances on the field, Ashley remains committed to the club.

“I’ve got no choice – I went into Newcastle like Sports Direct – they’ve got me and I’ve got them. That’s just the way it is,” he added.
