Former full-back Olivier Bernard has injected newfound optimism into our fanbase, claiming that a Saudi-backed takeover could go through today.
The Frenchman was speaking last night on the Football Matters show, where he claimed a ‘good source’ has told him that an announcement will arrive at some point on Tuesday.
Here’s what he’s had to say:
“I’ve heard it’s happening tomorrow [Tuesday],”
“I hope it is. I’ve had enough of it!
“Hopefully it will be official.”
“I’m 80%. It’s from a good source that it’s going to happen tomorrow [Tuesday].”
For all we know, his source could be ketchup, mayonnaise, or brown, not that it would make any sense for a well respected ex-Mag to build up the hopes of fellow Newcastle fans..
It’s anyone’s guess when this takeover will either be finalised or rejected.
Any slither of optimism is welcomed by our fanbase at this stage, and like Bernard, we have all had enough of the speculation too.
Hopefully he is right, of course. However, I wouldn’t be taking those cans out the fridge just yet.
