That is according to injury expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in medicine and data analysis.
As quoted by the Guardian earlier this month (October 8th), new director Amanda Staveley described the existing facilities as “really awful”.
She hinted that “fantastic players” would be put off joining the club because of the “unsuitable” nature of the training base presently.
A Saudi-backed consortium fronted by Staveley completed a £305million takeover of Newcastle earlier this month.
The Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund became the richest owners in football with an estimated wealth of £320billion.
Any spending on infrastructure is exempt from financial fair play limitations in the Premier League.
Dinnery insisted a “cutting-edge” facility would be a marked improvement for Newcastle.
He claimed it would be “beneficial” to the wellbeing of the playing staff.
“You’re probably spending 90% of your working week in and around those training pitches and facilities,” he told Football Insider‘s Adam Williams.
“Players want a state of the art, cutting-edge
environment – that not only feels as if it’s doing the job, but it will improve
you as an individual.
“It’s not just physiologically in terms of what you’re doing with your performance metrics and output. It’s also beneficial to your general wellbeing as a player.”
Newcastle won’t be short of inspiration for their “state-of-the-art” project.
Leicester recently completed an amazing reported £100million development on the site of a former golf course.
