Newcastle loan player thinks relegation could help the club

Newcastle loan player Gael Bigirimana has said that relegation might be the best thing for United in the long-term.

Attending a charity function hosted by fellow Burundi born striker Saido Berahino on Tuesday night, the current Rangers player said that he doesn’t want Newcastle to go down but it could turn out to be a positive.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Bigirimana said he might get in trouble for his comments but he thought relegation could help to bring about a change in the ‘foundation and structure’ of Newcastle United.

The midfielder citing the example of Southampton as a club who have got themselves sorted out and  have competed well this season.

Gael Bigirmana:

“This might put me in trouble but you look at what happened to Southampton five or six years ago

“Sometimes as a club you need everything to be reviewed, its foundation and the structure.

“I don’t want them to go down and get relegated, nobody wants to see that happen, but it is all about the future.”

Mystery still surrounds the medical reasons why Bigirimana is barred from playing for Rangers this season by the Scottish FA, the player not having made a single appearance since moving to Glasgow on loan in January.

    I fear the future is STILL “Ashley” as he isn’t going anywhere due to the price on any sale tag on NUFC being so over priced by a large margin.  So what would he do in the Championship, stabilise us into a Sheff Wednesday where we will challenge mid table?  Or even a Coventry (youth and free transfers) and see us slide down another division?  I can’t imagine Ashley ever doing the right thing and for us to come back up you need characters and two 20 plus per season goal scorers; true grit and pace in the same team.  IF we go down we need to look for a proven successful Championship manager.  We were fortunate last time to have characters like Barton, Nolan, Smith, and Geordies like Harper, Carroll and Shola and the decent players who didn’t abandon ship.  Only Steven Taylor and maybe Colback are the right type of player for promotion from the championship.  Janmaat is another, but wouldn’t blame him to move to a better club.

    So whether we stay up or go down it should be an interesting Summer as the dead wood are removed and others jump ship and the media spotlight will remain fixed on the spectacle that is NUFC. Maybe Ashley is beginning to hate the negative publicity and will pump a fortune into the squad this summer? 

    If we do stay up we will all be looking forward with hope to a summer day trip to Bournemouth, but I am sure it will be January when we play them away..typical.
