Shearer said in his column in The Sun: “What the hell is going on at Newcastle United Football Club?

“It looks complete and utter chaos and the lack of communication from the club is embarrassingly bad.

“Their world-class manager can walk away in a week’s time for nothing.

“But the only thing official we have heard from the club this summer is, ‘We are putting season ticket prices up five per cent’ and ‘This is our new home kit’.

“Why can’t anyone come out and say what the situation is with Rafa Benitez, as well as the proposed takeover, instead of just saying ‘no comment’?

“Where is the respect for the thousands and thousands of loyal fans?

“There is not a jot of thought for them even though they are the lifeblood of that football club.

“They have been there a lot longer than Mike Ashley – and will be there long after he has gone.

“So inform them if their manager is staying or going, instead of informing them of increased season ticket prices and new kits.

“They deserve so much better as they are the best fans in the country.

“Nothing surprises me at Newcastle any more.

“But for the club to stay silent and seemingly let someone as talented and as special as Benitez leave for free, it really is a terrible situation.”
