Arsene Wenger thinks that Kevin Keegan will bring his own attacking approach to the game, back to the Premier League, when he starts his second spell in charge of Newcastle against Bolton tomorrow.
Arsene Wenger – Kevin has a positive attitude about football
Wenger said tonight:
“I am surprised and pleased,” “Surprised first of all that he has come back to Newcastle because don’t forget that one week ago, everybody looked so convinced that Harry Redknapp would be the next manager of Newcastle.”
“Secondly, that he has come back into the job because he left it giving the feeling that he would not necessarily come back into the job.”
“Keegan has a positive attitude in the game, he loves football and he has a positive attitude – his teams try to play.”
The Arsenal manager believes the competition in the Premier League is higher today than when Keegan’s Newcastle United side pushed Manchester United all the way in the 1995/96 season and missed out by 4 points after being 12 points clear at Christmas.
But Wenger doesnâ€™t think it will be hard at all for Kevin to return to managing his home club, Newcastle United”
“I believe he has not lost the touch in three years,” “He will certainly be surrounded by people who have kept in touch with the game, so it will not be a problem.”
“I believe that vision is important for managers, strong characters, stamina in the motivation, and consistency in your attitude and consistency in the way you see football. That is important,”
Good words from Arsene Wenger, and the upcoming two Arsenal vs Newcastle encounters should be a joy to watch, with both teams endeavoring to play attractive and attacking football. You cannot ask for more than that.
