Mike Ashley - Sports Direct International


Last quote by Mike Ashley

I fully expect that independent shareholders will vote against this proposal due to the passage of time involved, although in my opinion, technically the money is owed and therefore should be paid. It's important for me to say that if John had owed one pound to Sports Direct, I would have ensured any sum was repaid in full.feedback

Rafa is, with [director] Lee Charnley's help... Lee Charnley answers to Rafa, not the other way around so were crystal clear Rafa makes all the final decisions on players out, players in, but he has to do it with the money the club has.feedback

Sports Direct is on course to become the Selfridges of sport by migrating to a new generation of stores to showcase the very best products from our third-party brand partners.

Mr Blue is an experienced businessman and lawyer and it is ridiculous for him to suggest otherwise. I can't believe that he is now trying to take me for £14million off the back of some drunk banter that he is seeking to engineer into something more.feedback

Jul 05 2017

When we got to the pub we started drinking heavily at the bar and consumed a lot of alcohol during the evening. We must have had four or five rounds of drinks in the first hour. I can't remember the details of the conversations that we had in the pub as it was a heavy night of drinking. I do recall that there was a lot of banter and bravado, which was a mixture of the drinking and me trying to build a rapport with brokers.feedback

Jul 05 2017

Mr Blue's game plan was for us to have a drinking session and he made it clear that my role was to make it a fun night and sell myself and [Sports Direct] as a potential client. I find it incredible that Mr Blue is actually suggesting that I made a binding agreement for £15m. It's nonsense. If I did say to Mr Blue that I would pay him £15m if he could increase [Sports Direct's] share price to £8, it would be obvious to everyone, including Mr Blue, that I wasn't being serious.feedback

Jul 05 2017

He didn't take me seriously because it was obviously just banter. I think that this shows how ludicrous it is that Mr Blue by contrast claims that we had a serious conversation that evening about a bonus for him.feedback
