Video: Richard Keys makes last-ditch move to derail £300m takeover – Now claims Saudis have competition

In a desperate attempt to derail the Saudis £300m arrival at St James’ Park, Richard Keys now claims to “know for a fact” that Mike Ashley has “another bid on the table”.

The disgraced Sky Sports presenter’s bitterness knows no bounds, with his latest comments (and flushed cheeks) showing just how furious he is at the prospect of some new found ambition arriving at St James’ Park.

Not only does he claim there’s a ‘second party’ in the mix, he claims Ashley would prefer them to buy the club. How convenient, just as beIN Sports’ last-ditch complaint looks likely to be too little too late!

Watch the clip of him speaking on beIN Sports below:

“beIN Sports has asked the Premier League to block the Saudi bid for Newcastle United, as a result of the piracy.

“Our governor (of beIN Sports) has written to every Premier League chairman and the Premier League.

“This just isn’t right…and it isn’t right, no matter what Newcastle United fans think, or are getting excited about..they think they might be jus about to become the world’s richest club…

“It is wrong that the Saudis were able…it was a government backed piracy operation, so that means everybody at the top end of the Saudi government knew what was happening and it continues to be the case that our (beIN) sports rights, OURS, that we have spent £500million on, are being stolen.

“This is happening at a time when clubs.

“There is one way out of this and it might be…that it suits everybody.

“I know for a fact there is another bid on the table and there has been for some time.

“I thought it would come to a conclusion at Christmas, I thought it might come to a conclusion earlier in the year.

“Now I said to you the other day, one thing that Mike Ashley has not done, is comment on this speculation around the current bid, said nothing.

“I still believe he would prefer the other bid to come to a successful conclusion.

“The Saudis I think have got two weeks exclusivity left (to complete the takeover) and then watch and wait for developments.”

He may be defending the company he works for, but he’s also showing his true colours – with this saga only exposing his extreme bitterness and bizarre hate towards Newcastle United.

Richard, if you’re so against this Saudi takeover going through you should just buy NUFC yourself….you know, just like you told Rafa Benitez to spend his own cash on transfers if he really wanted them so badly.

A joke of course (the buying NUFC bit!), but proof of what a hateful hypocrite we are dealing with here.

People say ignore him, but exposing him for the idiot he really is is quite enjoyable as he continues to make a fool out of himself.

  1. I really hope Richard keys just reverts back to his perverse sexual fiendish ways and touches up or makes derogatory or sexist/sexual remarks like the stuff he got sacked from sky for then the country he is shamefully employed by will cut his hairy fat hands off and March him outside and stone the fat insignificant gross pervert to death and stream it live on beIN sports ! Hell I might even buy one of those Saudi illegal boxes and watch it !


  2. Richard Keys the numpty one just wants to grow up and stop his stupidity and childish remarks at NUFC you are not a like man or should I say child just grow up and except the fact you are making all of these false alligations against nufc supporters


  3. What a pair of insignificant ****s these two ********s are it wont be long before they are peddled from Bein sports for been out of touch with mordern day football.


  4. The broadcast issue is between Bein and the alleged illegal screener it has nothing to do with any 3rd party (NUFC/premier league) or that fat hairy disgrace and his puppet. When this takeover goes through I would love to see his face. Deposit paid and contracts exchanged means it’s a done deal just waiting for the PL checks to be completed


  5. Sums Keys up, working in a country who treat women as 3rd class citizens given his previous misdemeanours. Taking the tax free Qatari salary. Qatar with its literal slave labour where over 1000 have died building the WC stadia, that’s the WC they bribed FIFA to get. They run Al Jezeera and allow pro islamist propaganda. They hate the Saudis who have blockaded their country for supporting and encouraging terrorism. Perfect place for the hypocrite Keys., who is so good nobody in the West or the US will employ him
