Ant and Dec have have launches an attack on Mike Ashley after today’s ‘disastrous’ Rafa Benitez news, saying those ‘at the top’ at NUFC should be ‘ashamed’ – yet hitting the nail on the head in admitting that ‘they won’t be’.
The Geordie duo go on to thank Rafa Benitez for his work over the past few years, but tell Ashley to ‘get out of OUR club’ – saying it is ‘astonishing’ how he is “repeatedly able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory” at NUFC.
Here’s what the popular ITV presenters have tweeted following today’s Rafa Benitez news:
“Those ‘at the top’ of our great club should be ashamed. The great shame is that they won’t be.
“The way they are repeatedly able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is astonishing.
Thank you @rafabenitezweb
“Mike Ashley – get out of OUR club”
They aren’t the only high profile figure to slate Mike Ashley today either, with several other ex-players, pundits or presenters getting in on the act.
Here’s a few others that have emerged on social media since the devastating news was confirmed this lunchtime:
