Mike Ashley has spoken out on Monday about Newcastle United (watch his interview below) only hours after Sunday’s derby result left the club’s future in the balance.

The club’s owner was at his Sports Direct Shirebrook HQ to primarily talk about the running of his retail empire and his ongoing dispute with the House of Commons.

MPs determined to get Mike Ashley to appear before them and justify the way he runs Sports Direct and associated brands, whilst the majority shareholder equally determined not to, despite a threat of being held in contempt of the House of Commons.

In this video below, it is Ashley talking about Sunday’s derby, Rafa Benitez and his promise/threat(!) to Newcastle fans, saying he is going nowhere even if the club are relegated.

As always, when Mike Ashley speaks out in public, you can’t help but have a morbid curiosity when hearing his voice as it is so rarely happens….
