Chris Waddle has slammed Mike Ashley over his ownership at Newcastle United after the departure of Rafael Benitez on Monday.

The former Magpies midfielder has criticised Ashley, who he believes doesn’t communicate enough with the fans, claiming that it isn’t good enough for an owner of a club to be so quiet.

Speaking to BBC 5 Live Sport, Waddle said: “Unfortunately for Mike Ashley, he’s a silent owner isn’t he – he never does interviews, he never comes out and says and I’ve always thought because the Newcastle fans want to know everything about the club daily.”
