The Magpies have secure their first win at home in the Premier League since the middle of November on Saturday defeating Cardiff by 3-0. This win meant that they could switch places with their rivals and have 2 points ahead of the relegation zone. The results couldn’t stop the frustration of the Newcastle supporters towards Ashley. This was the first game that he attended in November.
The fans were voicing angry chants and directing it to the owner before the amazing solo opener of Fabian Schar. Ashley had been unwilling to support Benitez in the transfer market.
However, according to reports, things might have changed. Ashley rushed from stands towards the office of Benitez after the match and offered congratulations to this coach. The former manager of Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Chelsea suggested that being a part of Newcastle irrespective of the financial backing is spoiling his reputation as the coach.
Hence, it is being expected that he will leave when his contract ends in the month of June, irrespective of high regards that are held by Ashley and Geordies. The fifty-eight-year-old player has received a boost with the meeting after the Asley. Ashley talked with him regarding the transfer plans prior to the winter window closing.
It seems like the owners are not being able to sell off the club after they put this on the market in the year 2017. His asking price, £300million is not close to being met though.
