It’s interesting that Newcastle fans seem to have gone for a foreign manager even though Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has said he wants a British manager. Only Kevin Keegan in 3rd place is in the top six and Alan Shearer came in 7th, probably due to his lack of any management experience.
Mike Ashley’s top 2 candidates for the job, Harry Redknapp and Mark Hughes came in at 11th and 13th places respectively.
That’s your vote. Let us know what you think.
