Is Vegas Trip In Doubt?

Last updated : 25 April 2019 By Footy Mad - Editor

Newcastle United's players are waiting to see if Mike Ashley will foot the bill for an end-of-season holiday in Las Vegas, according to a report.

Mind you, the players could organise a trip out of the change in their arse pockets, judging by what they get paid.

But ... a promise is a promise ... UNLESS you are Mike Ashley!

Ashley reportedly mooted the idea of a getaway as a reward for staying up back in October when he met Rafa Benitez and his players at an Italian restaurant in Ponteland.

At the time, the club was 18th in the Premier League and being tipped for relegation.

However, the team went on to recover from a difficult start, and the club secured its Premier League status last weekend after beating Southampton 3-1 at St James's Park.

The Daily Mail claim that Las Vegas was discussed as a possible post-season getaway for the squad.

But it is reported that the players "are waiting to hear if Mike Ashley will keep his promise." 

However, clubs must submit their bonus schemes to the Premier League BEFORE the start of the season.

Newcastle's players were involved in another dispute over their bonuses last summer, and the players refused to co-operate with the media at the time.

The dispute was eventually settled on the eve of the club's season-opener against Tottenham Hotspur.

United's squad shared an £11million bonus for finishing 10th in the Premier League last season.

Something Ashley tried to take off them!
