The Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan is now back in Newcastle, and seems pleased to be back.
Kevin Keegan – back in Newcastle and pleased to be back
Kevin hasn’t brought anybody into the club yet since he returned to Newcastle in January, apart from Lamine Diatta, who was an emergency free agent signing, to see us through the season.
There will be a number of issues Keegan will need to deal with when he gets back, but he’s such a confident and positive guy, he’ll be ready to tackle them when he does start on Monday.
Kevin talked to the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œThe players all went home with different agendas.”
“But theyâ€™ll come back with a spirit and togetherness that weâ€™ve got at the club now.”
â€œWeâ€™ve had no-one saying: â€˜Itâ€™s not a good clubâ€™. The players have never said anything like that.”
â€œAnd any player or member of staff who has left has been treated respectfully.â€
Kevin Keegan, as we’ve often said, has a heart of gold, and his players just love him, and always seem to rise to the occasion when it matters.
But that’s just one sign of a great coach.
It was apparent at the end of last season that he had instilled confidence in so many players, who before that had looked ordinary.
Michael Owen. Mark Viduka, Joey Barton, Nicky Butt, Abdoulaye Faye, Steven Taylor, Steve Harper, Jose Enrique and Oba Martins, all played their best football of the season under Kevin.
So the players we still have at the club are all very good, not to mention the great youngsters we have, just waiting to break through.
Keegan seems to be pleased to be back, and according to comments on our web-site, the Newcastle fans are really pleased he’s back too, and will be expecting some action on the transfer front next week.
The Chronicle is reporting that Kevin drove north yesterday, having touched down on his flight from the USA in London.
He’ll be back at work on Monday and we’re sure Kevin will start giving some interviews again, which are always good and worth a read by all of us.
We’re pleased that Kevin is back at the club – now all we have to do is bring in a few star players for next season. How about six? 😀
