Damien Duff has backed his Irish manager Joe Kinnear, and has said Joe has done an excellent job in steadying the ship at Newcastle.
Damien Duff – Kinnear has done good job
Damien told skysports.com today:
“From a football point of view, I think we’ve found stability at the minute with Joe coming in. He’s steadied the ship.”
“We’ve got some good results under him. He’s done well. But obviously from the top, the owner is trying to sell the club so hopefully we can get that resolved sooner rather than later.”
“He’s done what he has in a quiet way. He hasn’t really come in shouting from the rooftops. He’s someone to answer to. You need that in every line of work. I think the results have shown his impact.”
“The players have taken to him. I’d love to see him get the job. We’ll see I suppose over the next coming weeks or months.”
The Newcastle fans have been patient long enough, while Ashley and his folks have tried to sell the club, and we have to hope we’ll hear something firm about what is happening, within the next week or so – but certainly the sooner the better.
Only then will we be able to move ahead with everything that needs to be done at the club, like handling players’ contracts, and signings new players in the January transfer window.
