George Caulkin has revealed on Pod on the Tyne what Amanda Staveley told him about her role at Newcastle United.
The Magpies finally got rid of Mike Ashley when the news emerged on Thursday that he had agreed to sell the club and that the Premier League had passed through the 18-month takeover bid which was launched and fronted by PCP Capital Partners.
Will Newcastle be in the Champions League in three years?
Thousands of Newcastle fans crowded outside of St James’ Park to celebrate the news of no longer having Ashley as their owner and on Friday, Amanda Staveley and her husband Mehrdad Ghodoussi entered the stadium for the first time to meet the staff.
Caulking has revealed what Staveley has told him about her role at the club.
“Lee Charnley again, they’ve had conversations, but they were going in to meet him today [Friday], again what we’ve been told is that he’ll be there providing he agrees, for a few weeks, to be the handover between the regimes.
“But Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi will be running the club, they are the asset managers and she said to me, if we don’t get it right, we won’t be doing that for very long. So they’re under pressure to make it work.”
TIF Thoughts on Staveley and the takeover…
It is vital that Staveley and the consortium get it right off the pitch as then success and positive results are likely to follow and replacing Lee Charnley, who has been at the club and held a prominent role under Ashley would appease the fans.
The fact that Staveley has already said they want to deliver a Premier League title within the next 10 years really does speak volumes of how much the club is about to change but with lofty expectations comes a lot of pressure so everything has to go right for the club now.
