Many Newcastle United fans have been slamming a view on the prospective takeover in the North East from Richard Masters as Bryan Swanson shared a part of his interview with him on his official Twitter page.
When asked about the proposed deal between Mike Ashley and the Saudi-led consortium by Swanson on Sky Sports, the Premier League chief claimed that timing is not an issue and added that the top flight do not have any specific views about when things like takeovers need to be done by, giving little away.
Indeed, this was met with some negative reactions by several members of the Toon faithful, who seem to have grown increasingly frustrated not just that the bid has not yet been approved by England’s highest division, but the feeling that they are not being informed enough about what exactly is going on with their club.
Are you frustrated about the takeover situation?
Perhaps Masters has not helped himself here by giving little away about the whole situation, one that he should arguably be familiar with given that he is the league’s chief which has led to one fan suggesting he is “out of his depth” in his current role.
These NUFC supporters slammed his view on Twitter:
If this was Man Utd or Tottenham it would have been done by now you charlatan… Stop dragging it out… Yes… Or know… #nufc

What a shame you didn’t consider us fans when addressing the takeover.
Newcastle fans in there hundreds of thousands are sat waiting for the news the so desperately crave, can you offer then information that the deal has been approved yet?
Poor from Bryan here if you ask me

Exactly what I was thinking. He couldn’t have been clearer.

I think Mr Masters might be proving himself to be out his depth already in his relatively new role. #NUFC

It’s an entirely confidential process. Then you ask whether he has seen anything that puts the deal in doubt 🤣 these reporters saying weeks ago It was done…and they wonder why they get abuse on Twitter for talking utter garbage for clicks.
