It’s been revealed that Newcastle United have issued another “no comment” when asked to respond to Bin Zayed Group’s latest statement – a frustrating stance after huge takeover claims emerged once again this lunchtime.
This comes after Midhat Kidwai – the managing director of Bin Zayed Group – claimed at 1pm in a new statement that proof of funds have been provided and takeover documents have been signed by BOTH parties – stating they’ve now been sent to the Premier League ahead of a fit-and-proper persons test.
Unfortunately, it seems the club have refused to clear up the situation, however – suggesting to me that a certain Mike Ashley may want to keep quiet and cover his back just incase a takeover collapses. Keeping everybody in the dark, benefits Mike Ashley. If any deal falls through, the void of missing information allows him to spin whatever version of events he wants to the public.
Nevertheless, here’s what JPI Media’s Liam Kenedy shared on Twitter after contacting both the Premier League and Newcastle United following the latest takeover statement from BZG:
So, it seems the Premier League feels it’s Newcastle’s responsibility to comment on the new statement from BZG – but it seems they won’t.
Poor communication and leaving Newcastle fans in the dark – where have we seen that before? Just as Rafa Benitez.
Hopefully this silence proves to be golden and the tweet below from the Chronicle’s columnist ‘the Geordie Dentist’ is an actual representation of what’s really going on behinds the scenes.
That said, a refusal to comment will do little to lift any scepticism that STILL remains around this deal, leaving us fans in the dark once more.
Let’s pray ‘no news is good news’ from a Newcastle United perspective here.
