Sky Sports is reporting that at least three candidates have already been interviewed for the position of head coach at Newcastle, so that it seems that Remi Garde is not the only candidate who has talked to Lee Charnley and Graham Carr.
Remi Garde – one of four candidates interviewed
And the news is that at least one other coach will be interviewed today.
This is what Sky Sports reported:
“Newcastle have held informal talks with former Lyon coach Remi Garde about succeeding Alan Pardew at St. James’ Park according to Sky Sources”
“It is understood Garde is one of at least three people Newcastle have spoken to and the club will be speaking to one more candidate within the next 24 hours.”
With the news of last night, it’s not clear if a head coach will take over now or in the summer, since the Mail reported last night that Remi Garde wants to start the job in the summer if appointed – and he also wants to bring in his own coaching staff.
It’s interesting that other papers are not reporting that news about Remi Garde so we don’t know if it’s true or not.
If Newcastle don’t have a candidate that can start the job immediately, it will be interesting to see how the club plays that .
Newcastle could simply install John Carver as the coach now through the end of the season, and then wait to appoint a coach in the summer, when a lot more candidates will become available.
But we are still not safe from a possible relegation fight, so we need to start winning some games too.
