During the White and Jordan show this morning, Simon Jordan expressed his newfound belief in Newcastle United and their potential to challenge Manchester City as long-term contenders at the top of the Premier League. Jordan stated that the Saudi owners of Newcastle have no interest in settling for second place and will continue to strive for success.
Jordan believes that Newcastle will become a force to be reckoned with and could potentially be the club to unseat Manchester City from their current position. Although he does not believe this will happen next year, he thinks that Newcastle is well on their journey towards achieving this goal.
Jordan praised the club’s recent decisions, including the appointment of Eddie Howe as manager and the contributions of Jason Tindall. He also commended Amanda Staveley for her role in bringing in new players and the club’s recruitment policies. Jordan highlighted the recent acquisition of Isak, a £70m footballer, and compared him to Nicolas Pepe, who was bought by Arsenal for the same price.
According to Jordan, Newcastle has an “irresistibility” about them at the moment, and their upcoming participation in the Champions League should not be feared but seen as a huge opportunity. Jordan predicts that Newcastle will inevitably challenge Manchester City due to their economic resources and expects them to spend between £150m and £250m this summer, given their recent injection of £150m from being in the Champions League.
