Amanda Staveley revealed that the long-term ambition of Newcastle United is to win the Premier League following the takeover of the club. PCP Capital Partners is a part of the investment group led by the Public Investment Fund that put an end to Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign at the club. She believes that the new owner will look to invest at every level but did not reveal anything about the future of players or the club.
“Newcastle United deserves to be top of the Premier League. We want to get there. It will take time, but we will get there,” Newcastle United director on the board Amanda Staveley said. “We’re proud to be part of the Premier League. It’s an incredibly competitive league, which we love. Premier League football is the best in the world, and Newcastle United is the best team in the world. We want to see it get those trophies, obviously. At top of the Premier League, in Europe, but to get trophies means patience, investment, time. We want everybody to work with us to build the club towards what it needs to be.”
“We’ve got a great squad,” she added. “I had a great chat with Jamaal [Lascelles] tonight as captain. We’re really excited about strengthening the squad, but we have to work within Financial Fair Play and make sure this is done over a longer-term. But you can know and be reassured that we want to invest at every level. We want to get the best squad we possibly can. Everybody talks about it [big-name players], but what you need is a team that works well together. That’s also just as important.”
