Just when you think Mike Ashley couldn’t get much worse, he’s only gone and shown himself up during the coronavirus crisis.
Last night, the Newcastle United owner claimed he should be keeping his Sports Direct stores open, shamelessly suggesting his staff should be classed as ‘key workers’ and come into work as normal after the Prime Minister advised the country to continue exercising after lockdown was all but confirmed.
A new low for the Sports Direct owner, who’s shown his true colours here, proving he puts money and profits over peoples lives and the safety of his own staff:
His greed knows now bounds. Even by Mike Ashley’s extremely low standards, this is pretty astonishing and an absolute disgrace.
If fans of other clubs or the general public didn’t realise what a colossal moron this man really is, they will now – and they should stop buying from his shops as a result.
Hopefully people now know what a horrible bloke he is and that it wasn’t just Newcastle United fans whinging after all.
