That's the controversial verdict from former Premier League boss Tim Sherwood, who thinks Ashley isn't given the credit he deserves.

Newcastle are locked in a relegation battle but, with Benitez at the helm, Sherwood thinks they will end up safe.

"Rafa Benitez stifles games, he knows how to do it and he knows how to get results," he told BT Sport.

"Without Rafa Benitez, they get relegated with that squad of players. With Rafa they stay up.

"They are in a relegation battle, of course they are, but they are good enough to get out of it because of that man.

"Mike Ashley has to take some credit for appointing him.

"Yes, he doesn't want to go out there and pay a lot of money for average players.

"What he wants Rafa to do is turn average players into good players and that's what he's doing."

Appearing alongside Sherwood on the Saturday Morning Savage show was Chris Sutton, who too thinks Newcastle will stay up.

"Of course they are in a relegation fight. They are two points clear of the bottom three and had a really poor start to the season," he said.

"I just think they are too good to go down. When I say that, I think there are three worse team than Newcastle.

"But they still have work to do as they don't score enough goals and that's an issue.

"With Rafa, they have that manager at the helm who can get them over the line."
