Michael Owen has talked about his contract negotiations and admits he sat down with manager Kevin Keegan a couple of weeks back and Kevin discussed his vision and plans for the club.
Michael Owen – Keegan’s plans and vision for Newcastle all fantastic
Owen talked today starting with his contract negotiations:
“I’ve been in these situations many times before,” “It’s very hard to be a player in this situation.â€“There are so many others who’ve been in a similar position, but they don’t get asked the question as much.â€
“The situation is that the manager said to me about ten or 12 days ago that he wants me to stay, he told me what type of player he’s going for in the summer and what he thought we needed and his vision for the club and it’s all fantastic to hear.â€
“But it’s just been the manager and he said then that the chairman would get in touch with my advisor over the coming weeks. It’s not me putting pressure on, but he hasn’t yet, so there’s nothing really more to say.â€
“I presume the season will finish in a couple of weeks and then he’ll get in touch with me and talk over the summer.”
We’d like to hear Kevin’s vision for the club and we think it’s time Kevin had another radio call-in. Since the last one, he’s transformed Newcastle United and we know he’ll get lots of good questions from the Newcastle faithful, who are over the moon with recent performances.
We really like a call-in within the next week or two, but certainly before the end of the season. It would certainly be great to listen to Kevin about his overall plans for the club.
