Manchester United were relegated more times than Newcastle United before Mike Ashley arrived, so much for being a Yo-Yo' club... Rio Ferdinand may have been a very good player for Manchester United.

Amongst the nonsense spewed out by Ferdinand in support of Mike Ashley and against Rafa Benitez, Newcastle fans and anybody else with any credibility, the former Manchester United player backed up his laughable comments by claiming Newcastle United are a ‘Yo-Yo club’.

Thanks to Andy Kerr (NUFC fan and presenter on beIN SPORTS) for this tip-off: These are the Manchester United relegations that happened before 2007: Yes Rio, Manchester United were relegated more times in their history than Newcastle United, before Mike Ashley got his claws into NUFC.

Newcastle United weren’t ever a Yo-Yo club and they are only one now, solely because of Mike Ashley.

Ironically, Manchester United acolyte Rio Ferdinand should be looking a bit closer to home for a club that was more Yo-Yo than Newcastle United pre Mike Ashley.

In 115 years of Newcastle United history before Mike Ashley arrived in 2007, the Magpies were relegated four times, an average of once every thirty years or so.

Rio played all of his football in the Premier League era and funnily enough, Newcastle United were never relegated in the PL era, until Mike Ashley bought the club.
