Dietmar Hamann had a good World Cup for Germany in the summer of 1998 in France, and he was signed by Newcastle for £5.5M in that summer by then manager Kenny Dalglish, but he stayed only for one season before joining Liverpool during the following summer for £8M.
Didi Hamann while at Newcastle
And the 41 year-old former 59 times capped German International midfielder still thinks Alan Pardew is the right man for the job at Newcastle.
Didi had this to say to the Express today.
“Well I think Mike Ashley came out and backed him,” “I hope he stays there. He’s in his fifth season. When you talk about managers getting the sack or being under pressure, the most important thing is whether there is life in the team.”
“There was plenty of life in the team and they came back.” . “They are still pulling in the same direction.” “They are still pulling in the same direction. They just need a win.”
“They need that luck so that they can turn things around.” “They need to get a win as soon as possible and the dust will settle. The team is very talented and capable.”
“The longer you go without win, the pressure builds but there is a good relationship between Pardew and the board.”
Didi played 31 times for Newcastle with 5 goals in that one season, but he pushed for a move to Liverpool in the summer of 1999, when Frenchman Gerard Houllier was in charge of the Reds.
He ended up playing 280 times for Liverpool with 11 goals, before joining Manchester City in 2006, where he stayed for three seasons and played 71 times with one goal.
