There’s an excellent article in the Chronicle today by former Newcastle left back Olivier Bernard on Remi Garde, and he gives an absolutely glowing reference of the Frenchman’s coaching abilities, his excellent man-management and his ability to bring young players through the ranks.
Olivier Bernard – Garde would be perfect for Newcastle
It’s a good read, but then Olivier says the former Lyon coach will want some assurances if he is to join Newcastle, and he will not want his best players sold from under him, and he will not keep his mouth shut.
Oh oh – that could be the death knell of his candidacy for the Newcastle job. 🙁
There are two ways to look at Remi wanting some assurances from the Newcastle owner and Managing Director Lee Charnley, if he is to take over at St. James’ Park.
One is that he will just not be given the job, because Mike Ashley will not be able to control him as much as he wants to control the head coach, and as he did with Alan Pardew and even Chris Hughton before him.
The other more positive way to look at it, is if Newcastle are going to be successful and Remi is going to become a top coach at Newcastle, then Mike Ashley must stop selling our best players at any time, when the price is right.
So we’ll see – but it’s an enlightening article from the likable Durham City owner – and you can read it here.
Maybe Remi would be a great choice for Newcastle?
