It is becoming more and more obvious that Alan Shearer is in total control of club management at Newcastle, and it’s hardly a surprise to hear that Colin Calderwood is expected to leave the club in the summer.
Colin Calderwood – leaving in the summer
With Shearer having brought in Iain Dowie to be his assistant manager, there were questions about the former pair in control, Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood, who were running the club in Joe Kinnear’s absence.
There were also reports that the three of them Joe, Chris and Colin would be the management team to take Newcastle forward for the next two seasons, but that can no longer be the case.
Chris Hughton however, is a good coach, but not a good lead man, so Chris may still be retained by Alan. But it’s almost certain the former Newcastle and England great, will want to bring in either Rob Lee and/or Gary Speed as coaches, in the summer.
Alan also brought back Paul Ferris to handle all the medical arrangements at the club, and he sacked club doctor Dr. Ian McGuinness,, and is apparently trying to bring former club doctor Dr. Roddy MacDonald, currently at Aston Villa, back to Tyneside.
Colin Calderwood will now seek pastures anew at the end of the current season, and while he has been at Newcastle only since January, it will probably seem like a few years, as far as experience goes. 😀
We wish Colin all the best in his football future.
