– Can go to hell – NRK Sport – Sports news, results and broadcast schedules

Newcastle opted to play in a green and white third shirt against Wolverhampton, a shirt almost identical to that of the Saudi Arabian national team.

Saudi Arabia is known as the country of the club’s new owners.

We cannot let this go unnoticed. A lot has been written and said about this kit for Saudi Arabia, or Newcastle if you will. To me, it smells really bad when you line up in the Saudi Arabia national team jersey to play in the Premier League. It takes a sports wash to a sports scrub cream. “To me, I don’t think it smells very good,” commentator Kasper Wikestad said on Viaplay during the game.

Saudi Arabia celebrates a goal in March 2022. Five months later, Newcastle celebrate in almost the same shirt.

– Can go to hell

As is well known, Saudi Arabia’s state investment fund bought the club last year for NOK 3.5 billion, and criticism has been leveled at what many believe is yet another example of sports laundering in an international top sport.

That’s not the football I want to see. Sometimes, modern football can be hell, says a frustrated Viasport expert Bojan Djordjic.

He didn’t give up.

Sorry to swear. Give me back my heart, the jersey I used to wear, the club badge. I know money is important. You can’t take away the passion and love the supporters have for their own team. Sometimes you have to ignore big money. Why do we love football? We love rolling cases because they give you life and love. His stomach was twisted, said Djordjic.

– Long fingers covered in oil

NRK sports commentator Jan Petter Saltvedt has nothing left for costume action.

– This is an oil-covered finger for those of us who think that the acquisition of Newcastle and the type of owner at Europe’s top clubs is football’s final moral defeat, Saltvedt believes.

NRK commentators believe it’s easy to see that the owner has a lot of money and confidence right now.

– It’s pretty sickening. This is an open provocation, but also an open demonstration of power. The latter is what makes him provocative. No one can stop them from doing something, Saltvedt believes.

What do you think about the costume choices?

Former Manchester United player Djordjic believe it was the Premier League’s own fault that they allowed it to happen.

Power and money rule everything. When you are the master of the carpet, you can decide everything. “This is not a world I want to live in and a fight I want to see,” he said.

In the UK too, the choice of uniform has been noticed. TV profile Gary Lineker immediately likened him to Saudi Arabia when he saw the suit.

– Wondering where the inspiration for Newcastle’s new away kit came from, Lineker wrote on Twitter.

Isak in the stands

Against Wolverhampton, record signing Alexander Isak had to watch the game from the stands.

The work permit for the Sweden forward, who is said to have been sold from Real Sociedad for around 70 million euros (680 million kroner), did not fit his timing for the game.

After four rounds, Newcastle are in seventh place in the Premier League, after three draws. The next game is played in midweek against Liverpool at Anfield.
