Ginola Supports Keegan’s Newcastle Return



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.”

“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 – on both fronts.

Sunderland are getting a little too close to us right now. 🙁

Comments welcome.

    A patient says: “Doctor, last night I made a Freudian slip, I was having dinner with my mother-in-law and wanted to say: “Could you please pass the butter.” But instead I said: “You silly cow, you have completely ruined my life”.”

    King kev said himself that he hasn’t seen a live match for ages,. I wonder if he would be behind the times,with regards to everyone else in the prem.
    Although it could work the other way that being out of the game for so long, he will then come back with a renewed freshness that we so badly need.

    A woman goes into a cafe with a duck. She puts the duck on a stool and sits next to it. The waiter comes over and says: “Hey! That’s the ugliest pig that I have ever seen.” The woman says: “It’s a duck, not a pig.” And the Waiter says: “I was talking to the duck.”

    i’m afraid i can’t think of any more without getting horrendously offensive and i’m not about to do that online.

    however if we all put our heads together (not literally) then maybe we can coome uo with some.

    why did Keegan cross the road?
    to sign for newcastle.

    Does Keegan have enough credibilty with the new 20 a 26 yr old superplayers, that we desperately need to bring in?
    I don’t think so 🙁

    That’s why I think he’s in the past. (although i wouldv prefered difrently)
    A foreign manager would easily get a load of talented spaniards, french etc overhere
    Well, ‘easily’, that is if we don’t relegate this season :/
