One Mafioso down; Four to go
It only seemed a matter of time before one of the now infamous Gang of Five lost one of their members. Today Tony Jiminez left the club, without a pay-off hopefully, as the fantastically chaotic structure put in place by Mike Ashley lost a leg. The club said:
'Newcastle United can today (October 9) confirm that Tony Jimenez has left the Club.
Tony, who was appointed Vice-President (Player Recruitment) in January, has made the decision in order to pursue other interests. Newcastle United thanks Tony for all of his hard work and efforts and wishes him every success in the future.'
