Peter Taylor has not accepted any position at Newcastle United, although he seems to still be interested.
Peter Taylor – Newcastle a very good football club
Peter Taylor told the Newcastle journal today.
â€œItâ€™s a very good football club and anyone would be interested in working for a club like Newcastle. It is a big football club with a very high profile,â€
â€œThereâ€™s been no further discussions since we talked last week but at this stage I wouldnâ€™t necessarily expect there to be.â€
â€œ As far as Iâ€™m concerned there is no time-frame that has been set aside for a decision to be made, and Iâ€™m not expecting anything to be said soon.â€
Taylor has been out of work since he resigned from his position as manager of Stevenage Borough about 3 weeks ago, after failing to guide them to a play-off place in the Conference.
Taylor certainly sounds enthusiastic at the prospect of joining a coaching staff that is being assembled by the board, to bring players through the Newcastle Academy system.
The club wants to put together a worldwide scouting team that Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea have and have enjoyed much success with.
Getting Peter Taylor as part of that set up would be a major appointment of course.
â€œAs I said, I had a cup of coffee with Dennis (Wise) last week and it was a good conversation, and it was interesting to hear what he had to say and hopefully for him to hear what I had to say,â€
â€œI have not discussed what the contents of that conversation were or what the job would entail but of course it is an interesting opportunity if something does happen.â€
We think Peter may be waiting for other offers that may take him back into high profile management. We’ll need to wait on this one, but Peter would be a great coach to have at the club, there’s no doubt about that.
And he likes working with Kevin Keegan, as he did when Kevin was managing the England side.
