Peter Coates Defends Mike Ashley

6 years ago

Following yet another defeat at Stoke, Mike Ashley has had support from Peter Coates.

Stoke Chairman (and owner) Peter Coates has claimed that a couple of wins and Newcastle will be ‘two thirds up the table’.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Coates said;

“I have sympathy with coaches and chairmen in situations like this because I have experienced it and it is not very nice.

“They could turn the corner and a win can make all the difference – a couple of wins and they will be two thirds up the table.”

“It is easy when you are winning but when you are not, it is tough.”

No surprise to see owners sticking together but getting a couple of wins in a row looks a bit unlikely at the moment.
