The Newcastle United Football Club has issued an update on the condition of manager Joe Kinnear tonight.
Smiling Joe Kinnear – no wonder that’s Ryan Taylor he’s with 😀
NUFC Statement – Update On Joe Kinnear:
JOE Kinnear was admitted to hospital on Saturday morning after complaining of high blood pressure.
He underwent a series of tests during the day and the subsequent results have shown he is okay.
As a precaution, Joe will remain in hospital for observation for a couple of days and will then be discharged.
Joe missed Newcastle United’s 3-2 win at West Bromwich Albion but was visited by Club directors and coach Chris Hughton after the game.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has been asking how I have been feeling.”
“Although I missed the game I had my grandson giving me a full commentary on the match.”
“It was a great win for us and I told Chris well done and to pass on my congratulations to the players, when he came to see me on Saturday evening.”
Managing Director Derek Llambias said:
“Joe was in good spirits and had been listening to the game all afternoon.”
“And in typical Joe fashion he was more concerned about the team’s win than himself.”
“He was nice and relaxed, and hopefully will be back home in a couple of days.”
As we’ve said before, Joe should take the next 10 days off, since our next game is not until two weeks tomorrow.
It’s been a gruelling time for everybody at Newcastle, but Joe has taken the brunt of all the problems and pressure.
Whether you love or hate the man, you have to admit he’s doing his utmost to get Newcastle back on track again – after so many things have conspired against him and the team – let’s give Joe a break.
He deserves a rest, and when he comes back, the players should give him another boost – by winning against Everton. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
