Mehrdad Ghodoussi has now dropped an exciting claim on Newcastle United following their 2-0 win at Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Lowdown: Cloud nine
The Toon Army are on cloud nine at the moment, as their three points against the Bees has now lifted them up to 14th place in the table in the top flight, four points clear of the relegation zone having played fewer games than some of the teams below them.
This is exactly the kind of impact that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium wanted Eddie Howe to make when he took on the job at St James’ Park, and now he is reaping the rewards as they look increasingly likely to avoid the drop.
The Latest: Ghodoussi claim
In an interview with The Athletic, Newcastle owner Ghodoussi has now made an exciting claim with regards to the future of the Tyneside club.
He stated: “There is no reason why Newcastle in the next five years should not be a Man City or a Man United or a Liverpool or a Chelsea.”
Should Newcastle have hired Howe?
The Verdict: Exciting
The vision for Newcastle United from Ghodoussi is certainly exciting.
Assuming that they stay up this season, the summer looks set to be a very busy one in terms of transfers, as the Magpies look to strengthen the squad further following their January additions.
Given the project and the fact that they would be playing in the Premier League, the kind of names that they could attract may well be mouth-watering. With the right players brought in, there is no reason why the Magpies cannot compete at the top of the division within a few years.
