Newcastle fans lose belief after latest takeover statement

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a takeover statement released on social media on Monday, and it’s fair to say they’re not too optimistic after the Bin Zayed Group’s update.

The Toon Army are enduring a horrific summer so far. No one on Tyneside knows who will be in charge of the club come the start of the season, who will be in the dugout or even who will be on the pitch.

The Bin Zayed Group though, who made headlines when The Sun claimed they had agreed a deal to buy the club back in May, have reportedly released a statement on Twitter through Dubai-based Geordie radio host Peter Redding.

“Both parties have worked diligently in finalising a deal, none more so than ourselves. We have completed every aspect required in a takeover process,” they reportedly state.

Redding then claims that any rumours of there not actually being a successful bid are untrue, and says that if a deal does not come to fruition it will not be due to lack of effort from either party.

Of course, Newcastle fans have been driven to cynicism by the failed takeover attempts in the past, and plenty are sharing their doubts about this latest news.

The statement basically reaffirms that there are concrete talks between the two parties, but offers no real into insight into the actual progress of the deal, keeping things vague and certainly not offering the clarity fans were hoping for.

Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
