Oba Martins has said that the uncertainty at Newcastle is already forcing a lot of the players at the club to reconsider their futures on Tyneside.
Oba Martins – fans loved and admired Kevin
Newcastle are currently without a manager and owner Mike Ashley has said he will seek a buyer for the club, but until that time, the club will be in complete limbo.
Nigerian striker Oba Martins admits the situation is not good as he told The Sun:
“Yes I have been thinking deep about my own career,” “But I will never let that affect my game because I have to give my all.”“Everyone is entitled to their own decision and career. Events like this will only trigger speculation.”
“If the players are determined to succeed they will not allow what just happened to bother them. But nothing will surprise me in the coming months.”
“Kevin’s departure came as a rude shock. I don’t know what led to it but it’s a huge setback.” “For the fans it’s a huge blow and you can see how they expressed their anger, putting the pressure on the owner.”
“They truly love and admire Kevin Keegan. I feel so much for the fans because they don’t deserve it.” “I don’t know who’s to blame. The only losers are the fans and the players.” “It’s normal that players feel depressed. We all like him as a manager.”
The resignation of Keegan has certainly brought any Newcastle progress on the field to a complete and utter halt, and the first thing we have to do now is to somehow start that progress again.
But it looks like that will need to be under a new owner, once Mike has sold the club, and yet another new manager.
