Kevin Keegan in the Milburn Stand last night
Kevin Keeganâ€™s sensational return as manager was announced on Wednesday afternoon at around 4:30 pm local time, and took everybody by surprise. King Kev watched from the stands when he arrived with Owner Mike Ashley and Chairman Chris Mort, about 20 minutes into the game.
Newcastle made it through to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup with a fabulous 4-1 victory over Stoke City on Wednesday night with a display of attacking football, even after they had gone down to 10 men after Emre was sent off after 29 minutes Keegan was greeted with a standing ovation from the 35,000 crowd as he took his seat in the Milburn Stand directors’ box during the first half.
And Chairman Chris Mort spoke briefly on Wednesday night about the return of King Kev.
“We did not think we could get him back to the club.â€
“But he is absolutely the right man for the club and we are delighted.”
The 56-year-old will officially be unveiled as the new manager on Friday afternoon, in a press conference at 2pm, in front of what is sure to be a worldwide audience. And the news is global in nature, as it is being reported all over the place, and itâ€™s great and very exciting news for our club Newcastle United. 😀
The excitement begins again for the City of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and Newcastle United fans all around the world.
