Mike Ashley will have to think about appointing a short term manager at Newcastle, until he can get the club sold.
Alan Curbishley – not approached by Newcastle United
And one experienced manager who could certainly do the job would be Alan Curbishley, who recently resigned from West Ham for the same reason Kevin Keegan resigned, Alan did not have full responsibilities for transfers.
But Curbishley claims he has not been approached about the vacancy from the Tyneside club, and when asked yesterday about any reported interest from Newcastle, Alan told Sky Sports News:
“No, there’s been none whatsoever.” “I don’t know if I’m in their plans or not.”
“At the moment I’m just sorting myself out, as you can imagine.”
Even though Newcastle have the same managerial structure as West Ham, Alan could still do the job for a few months, but we cannot believe he’d want it.
It would seem as if he was going from the frying pan into the fire, and perhaps Alan would like a little rest for a while, from the crazy world of football management.
But we’ll need to find some other experienced Premier League managers who are available.
Let’s think now – hey isn’t Sam Allardyce still available? 😀
