Some Newcastle United fans have been rubbishing the latest reports linking us with another off-the-pitch official.
The Magpies have previously been linked to Lille’s Director of Football Luis Campos, with the likes of Domenico Teti, Owen Brown, Frank McParland and Pablo Longoria also being linked to the Tyneside role. Now, they can add another name to that list.
Le 10 Sport revealed that the Tyneside club are looking to make the Portuguese Director of Football part of our new project.
Will PIF takeover the club?
Ultimately, this will depend on whether the £300m takeover from the Saudi-backed PCP Capital Partners goes through, which will finally see off retail tycoon Mike Ashley.
Undoubtedly, this further frustrated supporters as they made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that it is “crazy times” that the takeover has not been completed, while another was not impressed that we were linked with another Director of Football.
No takeover yet. Crazy times
