David O’Leary has revealed in the Daily Mail today that he has turned down a two year contract at Newcastle to manage the club.
David O’Leary – the latest to turn down Newcastle?
This news comes after it appears that Mike Ashley may now want to keep the Tyneside club, as he has had no offers close to the £100M price he is looking for.
The news comes after yesterday’s blaze of news from former manager Joe Kinnear, suggesting he had been offered the job for two years , but had to turn it down for medical reasons.
However, this morning Joe is now saying he could be ready in a month, rather than the 3 months he talked about yesterday.
It would appear that O’Leary was just nor interested in joining the Ashley circus going on at Newcastle right now.
After waiting 10 weeks with no manager, Ashley is now seemingly scrambling to get a manager in place as soon as possible.
You could never accuse Mike of being organized, or thinking things through fully, and of course he doesn’t know the first thing about what it takes to run a football club.
Apart from those deficiencies he’s been a great owner for the Tyneside club.
The sooner this man gets out of Toon, the sooner we can start rebuilding the club, and bring some much needed respect back to St. James’ Park.
