Kevin Keegan has still not decided who will be his assistant manager at Newcastle United.
Kevin Keegan – back at the club he loves
But it appears that Kevin will be talking to Alan Shearer about the second in command position. When asked whether he had decided on his assistant manager yet, Kevin told the Shields Gazette this afternoon:
“No, not yet.â€ “Obviously I’ve just started. I’ve literally just come down here in the clothes I had on yesterday.â€“I’ve come down from Glasgow with my wife behind me.”
“I think she thinks I need some deodorant on. Not only that, but I had forgotten how cold it is up here.â€
“I’ll have a good look at the squad and the training ground. I’ve not been to the training ground. It’s not the same one I left all those years ago.â€
“So I’m going to learn a lot in a short space of time, and we’ve got a big game on Saturday.”
We know Alan wants to get into the running of the club and he’s been surprisingly open during the last two days that he wants to assist Newcastle United in any way he can.
So the fact Kevin is going to discuss it with him could open the way for Alan to be announced as Kevin’s assistant manager tomorrow. We really don’t know if that will happen or whether it can work.
It will be difficult, because for once Alan will not be the top guy in control of things. But the next thing is for the two of them to sit down and talk and they know they have to do what’s best for the club. They’ll decide if they think they can do it together. Maybe they can.
What do you think?
