Rio Ferdinand sends out a message to Newcastle fans criticizing Mike Ashley | Sportslens.com



Former Manchester United defender and popular Premier League pundit Rio Ferdinand send a message to the Newcastle United fans who have been criticising Mike Ashley and Steve Bruce this season.

Ashley has been heavily criticised in recent years for his lack of ambition when it comes to improving the playing squad and Bruce has attracted criticism because of how poor the MacMagpies have been in the Premier League this season.

Newcastle are in danger of going down to the Championship this season and they have won just two of their last 20 matches across all competitions.

Despite their abysmal run of form, Ashley has shown no intention to sack Bruce and bring in someone who can lift the form and morale around the club.

Furthermore, Bruce has not shown any tactical flexibility either in order to get the best out of his players.

Ferdinand has claimed that the Newcastle fans should round up their own money and take over the club if they want to get rid of Ashley.

The former Premier League defender has previously backed the under-fire Newcastle owner as well. Last year he claimed that Newcastle were lucky to have Ashley as their owner.

Speaking to his YouTube channel, the former Premier League winner said: “Whether you like it or not, he’s the one that’s put the money up and he’s doing what he thinks is right for the club. Whether the Geordies like it or not… a lot of them hate him and don’t like him but round your money up and take over the club then.”

Here is how the Newcastle fans have reacted to Ferdinand’s comments.
