Ashley has the owner of Newcastle for the past 10 years, but the English businessman has decided that he will sell it.
The Magpies are looking for a buyer at the moment, and the St. James’ Park faithful will hope that they find one soon.
Newcastle fans have never taken to Ashley, who has seen the team get relegated twice to the Championship during his time at the club.
Owen is a former Newcastle player and was on the books of the North-East club from 2005 until 2009.
The former Real Madrid striker believes that the Newcastle fans will be pleased with the development at the club.
The Englishman has also given his take on Rafael Benitez’s side’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
“Palace claimed a first league win of the season with last weekend’s scalp of Champions Chelsea but are unlikely to replicate that in the North-East in a likely cagey 90 minutes for both sides.”
