"I would like to thank Rafa Benitez for his magnificent achievement this season", Ashley wrote in a statement released after the game.
However since returning to Ukraine, the Argentine forward has transformed himself into the best striker in Eastern Europe and he is now exactly what Newcastle need ahead of next season.
"It is exactly the same as previous year".
Benitez remains to be unclear how a lot he can spend in the summertime and whether or not he might want to consider mortgage targets or whether or not the membership will make important everlasting signings after retaining their Premier League standing.
Ultimately Benitez, in a paradox of a just, but harsh decision by Florentino Perez, was sacked following allegations of unpopularity with supporters, displeasure with players and a failure to get good results against top sides, and just over two months later he swapped sangria for stotties, the sun for the cold, Real Madrid for Newcastle United.
"You need to sign players to be sure you have a good squad with competition".

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has challenged his players to end the season with the victory over Chelsea he believes they deserve.
"What we've made in the past with England is errors with gambling on players you can't rely on because of injury".
"Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him".
"When you're flicking through Twitter or people say there's rumours about this, that and the other you're aware of it but I don't take any notice", Lascelles told Sky Sports. I hope very much that Rafa will remain at Newcastle United.
