Dennis Wise has today claimed that Mike Ashley will only sell Newcastle to someone who will ‘take the club forward’ when asked about a potential takeover during yet another shameless appearance on Sky Sports.
Wise – the former Executive Director of Football at Newcastle United – also believes that Ashley ‘cares for Newcastle’ despite running the club in a ‘structured way’, with the 52-year-old defending the fact he doesn’t ‘pile hundreds of millions into the club’.
Here’s what Wise has had to say about his old pal Mike Ashley during his chat with David Craig in front of the Sky Sports cameras today:
“I know Mike Ashley, and he cares for Newcastle, even if fans say he doesn’t.
He runs them in a structured way. He’s not there to pile hundreds of millions into the club.
“He’ll only sell to someone who’ll take it forward.”
I don’t know what else Sky expected here, with Wise being biased as ever, with his comments almost mimicking exactly what he said about Ashley and a potential sale 12 months ago.
Biased and regurgitated stuff from Wise.
Let’s just hope this isn’t the prelude to news that the takeover has collapsed – with Wise’s last defence of Ashley coming just before a recent failed bid if memory serves me correctly.
