It will probably surprise a lot of Newcastle fans that Kevin Keegan doesn’t know how much he has to spend in the summer.
Kevin Keegan – has no idea how much he has to spend
Kevin was asked this morning how much he has available and he told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle:
â€œI donâ€™t know. I have not been told. I donâ€™t know what is here if I am honest.â€ â€œThatâ€™s not a problem. We will just have to wait and see.â€â€œYou really need to be talking to Chris Mort or Denis Wise about the finances for this football club.”
â€œItâ€™s not my job and I have never been involved in it.â€ â€œThatâ€™s the truth. I cannot help you on that other than saying my job is to ask Tony Jimenez to go and get players.â€
â€œI give them a player and they go and try and get him for us.â€ â€œI am saying that whatever finance will be there, it will not be enough to take us into the top four.â€
Of course we wouldn’t expect Kevin to reveal how much he has, even if he knew the amount. The important thing for Kevin is that he identify the players he wants and let the Recruitment boys go out and get them – and we expect that’s happening on a few fronts right now.
It would be nice to announce a good signing soon, just to get us off to a good start for the summer.
