Beardsley excited about Newcastle future under Ashley
Newcastle United legend Peter Beardsley has praised the work of club owner Mike Ashley.
Beardsley is currently football development manager with the Magpies.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "The club is in a good place. The owner is different class.
"He has taken a lot of stick unfairly, but he's different class. What he's done to this club is incredible.
"I can't speak highly enough of him.
"I don't see him often - only on match days - but what he's done is great and so is what he's going to do. He's been fantastic."
