Former Newcastle United left winger David Ginola says that unfinished business could encourage Kevin Keegan to return to Newcastle United.
David Ginola – supports Keegan return to Newcastle United
Frenchman Ginola, who played for the Tyneside club from 1995-97, supported Keegan when asked about a potential return for Kevin to the Magpies.
Ginola told BBC5 Live this afternoon:
“Why not?” “When I was there, we didn’t achieve what we expected at the time.”
That was the famous 1995-1996 season, when Newcastle had a 12-point lead at Christmas, in the Premier League, but Manchester United still won the title after Newcastle collapsed in too many games on the run-in.
Ginola, who is now 40, continued:
“Kevin Keegan was the main reason I signed for the club. He really brought something special in terms of spirit,”
“He really was the man for the job, especially at Newcastle.â€
“I learned a lot about how to respect everybody at the club and I am sure this is why he was so loved and appreciated.”
Kevin is currently running his Soccer Circus in Glasgow and has been linked with a return to management at Newcastle. In fact, this afternoon he was installed as the new favorite in the betting at 6-4 by William Hill’s to take on the management job at Newcastle.
Owner Mike Ashley returns from conducting some business in the Pacific Rim tomorrow, so something new may come out tomorrow.
The sooner Newcastle get a good new manager in, the sooner we can start climbing that league table again, and the quicker the better â€“ on both fronts.
Sunderland are getting a little too close to us right now. 🙁
