The wife of the Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has intimated that she would like to help Newcastle United out, “if she had that sort of money”. This article appeared on a celebrity website icelebz.com: Cheryl Cole is desperate to buy her beloved soccer team.
The Girls Aloud beauty – who hails from Newcastle, in the north east of England – is keen to put some of her fortune into struggling Newcastle United Football Club and would consider becoming part of a consortium to save the team.
Radio host Craig Beck asked Cheryl, who is married to Chelsea soccer star Ashley Cole: “You must have got a bit of cash. You don’t fancy buying Newcastle and putting Ashley at left back?”
The sexy singer – who has a fortune of over £10 million [$16,500], while Ashley earns £3.5 million-a-year [$5.7 million] – replied: “If I had that kind of cash, I would.”
The club’s current owner Mike Ashley put Newcastle United up for sale in May for £100 million [$165 million] but he is yet to receive an offer which meets his demands.
Fans think Cheryl would make a great owner, with one supporter saying: “I don’t think she’d be any worse than the bunch we’ve got now.”
Earlier this year, Newcastle were relegated from the Barclays Premiership – England’s top soccer league – and there are fears they could go into freefall if the right owner is not brought in.
So from those quotes, i can see its quite obvious that she has NO INTENTION of buying Newcastle, but to be honest, from the pics she may have been better considering Bristols City!
