Newcastle United have issued an official statement on Joe Kinnear’s bypass surgery tomorrow.
Joe Kinnear – to have triple bypass surgery tomorrow.
This is the statement from Newcastle United that has just been issued.
Newcastle United can confirm that manager Joe Kinnear will undergo a triple heart bypass operation tomorrow.
Joe was admitted to hospital on Saturday morning in the Midlands after reporting of feeling unwell at the team’s hotel ahead of the game at West Bromwich Albion.
Tests have since confirmed Joe requires surgery, after which he will need to rest for a period of at least eight weeks.
“I’ve really appreciated all the get well messages I’ve received from people over the last week and I’d like to thank everyone who has been in touch.”
Managing Director Derek Llambias said:
“I am sure the whole football community will join Newcastle United in wishing Joe a speedy recovery.”
Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood will continue to take charge of first team football affairs at the Club.
Well it’s a triple bypass and not a quadruple so that’s a good thing.
We wish Joe all the best, that his surgery is successful, and that he makes a quick and complete recovery.
