Newcastle manager has talked about the dismissal of Joe Kinnear at his press conference today for the game at Chelsea on Saturday, and Alan said he was sad to see Joe go.
Alan Pardew – on sidelines in Sunderland game
This is what Alan said today when asked about the departure of the Director of Football:
“I’m sad to see anybody lose their job.” “He did a lot of good work here, but the decision was the board’s decision.”
“My job is working towards getting the club’s position in the league more secure.”
“Coloccini will hopefully return in the next three weeks, maybe against Aston Villa.”
We’re not sure what good work Joe did at Newcastle, so if Alan was going to say that, then maybe he should have mentioned some of the good work Joe Kinnear did - because the fans certainly couldn’t see any, in his short second tenure at Newcastle.
And it’s a little worrying we still have injuries to Papiss Cisse, Yoan Gouffran and especially to Colo, who has already been out five weeks with that knee injury of his – and Cheick Tiote is also a doubt for Saturday.
