Richard Keys reveals approach to Police and asks them to prosecute Newcastle United fans

3 years ago

Disgraced TV presenter Richard Keys says he has approached the Police.

After yet more shameful unjustified attacks on Rafa Benitez in recent days, Keys alleges that he has been abused by Newcastle fans.

Richard Keys, who was forced to leave Sky Sports due to his conduct, claims there are ‘one or two Police investigations’ underway after ‘vile abuse you Geordie poured my way.’

He also claims he is ‘fairly certain charges will follow.’

Like a lot of what he says/writes, I don’t whether to believe this either.

I have got no doubt he got abuse because he deserves it, I just hope that Newcastle fans did do it in an intelligent way that was on the right side of the law.

You can still give somebody justified stick or ‘abuse’ without it necessarily crossing  any legal or moral line.

One thing I am certain of and that is in no way did Rafa Benitez take any ‘advice’ from a loser such as Richard Keys…

Richard Keys writing on his personal blog:

“Spurs looked good.

“And I thought Newcastle did too.

“They’ll win more than they lose playing like that.

“And I’m pleased Benitez took my advice. ‘I’m a pro’, he said when asked about alleged transfer failings this last week. ‘I’ve nothing to say’.

“Exactly. He got seven in. I’m sure, like every manager, he wanted more, but why resort to all the de-stabilising whining?

“Incidentally, the vile abuse you Geordies poured my way last week has led to one or two Police investigations. I’m fairly certain charges will follow.

“I’m always happy to exchange views – but let’s try and keep it out of the playground shall we?

“You do yourselves and your wonderful club a dis-service.”
