Wed 13 October 2021 | 21:16

Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has said the Magpies can achieve anything now that the club’s new Saudi Arabian owners are willing to invest heavily.

The Magpies have recently been taken over by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, chaired by Crown

Prince Mohammed bin Salman

.

The Saudi-backed takeover has sparked concern in the wider football world, triggering a protest from other Premier League teams. However,

Newcastle

supporters who were dissatisfied with Mike Ashley's tenure as owner have welcomed it.

Although there has been early hype about Newcastle building a dream team, Jonjo Shelvey has asked for a little more patience from fans.

“I understand what the fans want - they want [Kylian] Mbappe and [Lionel] Messi. All I can say is, that won’t come overnight, we have to be realistic,”

Shelvey

told the

Daily Mail

.

“In terms of the setup, we all know the training ground facilities are below par when it comes to Premier League standard. As players we’ve got on with it and we’ve had to deal with that to the best of our ability. The money just hasn’t been there. That was hard to accept.

“But the money will be there now. I understand you can’t go spending so much straight away, and it will be a long process, but it’s one that this club and the fans deserve. This club can achieve anything it wants now, the sky is the limit.”
