Ashley: 'I Want To Bring Success Back To United'

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has spoken about his plans for the future at St. James' Park


By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor

 

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has spoken about his plans for the future at St. James' Park and his determination to bring success back to the Club.

The Magpies have endured a disappointing 2014/15 campaign and go into the final game of the season with their Barclays Premier League status still not secured.

And when asked where the blame for United's poor season rests, Ashley simply replied: "My door.

"I didn't envisage us being in this position at Christmas. Obviously, after the last couple of weeks I'm still a little bit shocked at where we find ourselves today.

"(But) I will continue the policy of investing in the football club.

"We have got the club on a very sound financial footing, so we are able to spend and punch above our weight thanks to the current financial situation the club finds itself in.

"We may have the cart, financially, but we now need to bolt the horse on, and we are going to."

When quizzed about his intentions for the future, Ashley said: "To definitely win something and, by the way, I won't be selling (the Club) until I do.

"(The club is not for sale) at any price. And when I say 'win something', if we ever get into a position of being in a Champions League place, that also counts as winning something.

"From this day forward we will be making our own luck."
