Newcastle Chairman Chris Mort has issued a statement early this afternoon, on the manager situation at the club.
Chris Mort – professional statement from the Chairman
Here is the Official Newcastle United statement from Chairman Chris Mort:
“In the process of appointing a new manager at Newcastle United, we have identified and spoken to a number of potential candidates.”
“This is a very important appointment – our first since taking control of the Club – and we will take as long as required to make sure we bring in the right person.”
“That person will be someone we believe will be able to deliver successful results and performances to accompany that.”
“We can confirm that Harry Redknapp is one of the people the Club has spoken to. However, Harry made it clear he is happy with life on the South Coast and we wish him well for the future.”
“We will continue to devote our time to the very important task of selecting the right person to manage Newcastle United and we will make a further announcement when appropriate.”
As usual it’s a good statement from the chairman, and probably an attempt to calm things down a little.
But Chris â€“ who are we after? 😀
