Chris Mort has been impressed with the way Kevin Keegan has gone about his job as new Newcastle United manager in the last 6 days.
Chris Mort – impressed with enthusiasm of Kevin Keegan
From a standing start Kevin seems to have gone right back into th swing of things, and is certainly making his influence felt throughout the club.
Chairman Mort also believes the football world is a much better place now that Kevin Keegan is back in the game.
He told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle:
â€œEveryone in the game I have heard talk about his return to football has said he is such a great guy to have back.â€ â€œHe is just what the Premier League needs in terms of the sort of managers we already have.â€
â€œWe hope he will excite people with the sort of football he will bring to the Premier League.â€ â€œI am delighted to see him back and I am sure that is the same for the rest of football.â€
â€œHe is a guy who has been sorely missed while he has been away.â€
Chris also said he isnâ€™t at all concerned by Keeganâ€™s time away from the hectic and stressful world of the Premier League.
â€œFrom my personal perspective, I think itâ€™s great he has had a break. As people can see, and people have seen previously, he gives 150% and, from his point of view, that break has been good.â€
â€œIt has re-charged his batteries.â€ â€œHe has massive enthusiasm to work hard and get this club going again.â€
And talking about the old days that made Keegan and Newcastle renowned as the Entertainers, Chris said:
â€œI didnâ€™t need to watch videos of the old days.â€â€œI can recall those days, donâ€™t worry!â€
Kevin has certainly been welcomed back by lots of current Premier League managers, not to mention the players who have played for him previously. We are well on our way to vastly improving, not only the image of Newcastle United Football club, but also the football we play. One thing you can be sure of is there will be an emphasis on attacking and entertaining play – once again.
