NOLAN: YOU CAN'T FAULT ASHLEY
Former Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolanhas defended club owner Mike Ashley and says Rafael Benitez knew "what he was going into" when he first joined the club.
"You can't fault Mike," Nolan told talkSPORT. "I feel for the fans, and I feel for Mike as well. "It's crazy because being a player and knowing Mike and also being close to the fans, I feel torn because I know exactly how hard he is trying to give the Newcastle fans what they want.
"When he first went he had great intentions of putting Newcastle back on the map and obviously he's lost that now and he wants to sell it, he wants to get out.
"But he's still able to finance the club and make sure everything is running smoothly. You go up there and it's a fantastic club and what he's done within the ground is fantastic.
"The fans want a sale, Mike wants a sale and when that happens everyone will be happy - Mike as well."
