Wise: 'Why Should Ashley Talk To Geordies?'

Last updated : 06 October 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

The former Wimbledon skipper took a dig at Geordies at the weekend, and someone has obviously stuck a microphone in his direction again.

When asked why Ashley doesn’t come out and talk to the media, Wise said on beIN Sports: “Why should he? He doesn’t need to explain anything to anyone.

“He’s got his job, he does what he does and he owns the football club.

“You don’t have every owner of a club coming out.

“Abramovich doesn’t come out does he?

“The Glazers don’t come out.

“There’s loads of them, so why should Mike?

“Mike is an approachable guy.

“There are a lot of owners of football clubs you can never get near. Mike you can. You can actually walk up.

“He finds himself in a situation with Pardew. Why?

“Because there was a press bloke in a pub that he was in and he turns round and says, and I know Mike with his flippant jokes and him messing about, he said: ‘Yeah I’m going to get rid of him next week.’

“A bloke come up and he just wanted to get rid of him. Then they printed the story.

“This why he won’t (speak to press) because they’ll turn it.

“Because he’s an approachable guy people can get near him and that’s his own problem.

“He’s so relaxed in the way he is.”
