Kevin Keegan – welcomed back to the club by Chris Mort
Some extracts from what Kevin said this afternoon.
“I want to bring the very best to Newcastle United.”
“If there is a role that Alan wants, and is right – that’s the key – then I would love to have him back here. I will definitely be speaking to him.”
Keegan also talked about Owen:
“I have heard about his book and he is entitled to his opinion and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
Asked why he could succeed when so many others had failed:
â€œI know the club. I’m not saying the other managers didn’t, but I know it as a player, a manager.”
“I know what it’s like in terms of what the fans want.“I don’t have to learn those things.”
“This is a very special club, and that’s what people outside this area don’t understand, and you’ll never understand from some of the recent comments I’ve heard”
“I think I’m the best qualified person to come and do this job. This club doesn’t scare me. The job ahead doesn’t scare me.”
Comments very welcome.
