Chronicle Writer Gives Update On Manager Who Has Interest In Position



When it was confirmed that Rafa Benitez would not be returning to Newcastle, a slew of managers were linked with having interest in the vacant position.

One of those was former Feyenoord manager and ex-Netherlands captain Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

This is what van Bronckhorst’s agent Guido Albers said last week:

“I think the rumors come a little early. No one from the club has spoken to Gio. But I think every trainer in the world is interested in the Premier League.”

“Of course he would like to work at Newcastle if that opportunity arises. is a great club with a great fan base, but it’s up to them who they go for”

The Chronicle’s Lee Ryder has tweeted an update to his interest in the position.

Van Bronckhorst managed Feyenoord for four years and decided to leave the club at the end of this past season. He led Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title in 2017.

While it looks like Roberto Martinez is currently Newcastle’s main target, there is growing doubt that he would leave Belgium to take the position and work under Ashley.

While van Bronckhorst was successful at Feyenoord and also a great leader on the pitch, his lack of experience is a concern if he were to become Rafa Benitez’s successor.

    Another week has passed without a statement from BZG. I know they may have NDAs to stick to but in my opinion it should NOT prevent them giving some sort of comment or even a vague hint of how this so called takeover is progressing. Its ok for a local dj to give hints of or an imminent? statement,, anyone could boast the same info.
    I do think there is still a slim chance that there is something brewing in the back round simply bcos nobody has said the deal is off bcos of whatever reason. There seems to too many coincidences for it to be pie in the sky bullshit,, and i doubt very much that either BZG or Pinsent Masons would be privy to any of Ashley,s devious games.
    It is the start of the UAE weekend now so i doubt we will hear anything til at least Monday, that,s if we hear anything at all

    I don’t know why there’s such doom and gloom. These people said twice they had agreed fee and since then misheard has given little snippets out. Nothing has changed. It should happen. Frustrating waiting yes but just bear with it

    Jib rest assured you’ll never see my tackle – you filthy swine.

    If we ever did meet and you started that mullarkey, calling me honey or making on you were Jane I would give you a good slapping. Nothing would stop me.
    Your high pitched cries of you wouldn’t hit a woman would you – look I’m even got the bra and suspenders on would be to no avail.

    It was shit you are right. I started going in the early 60s and have never seen the team win a domestic trophy. I hope that tragedy never befalls you.
    For some diehard supporters to never win anything and play bog standard footy for the vast majority of that time and still attend every game is a badge of honour. It shows they are true supporters whilst the Keegan era are really just hangers on.
    It makes them feel superior. A better quality of supporter. And if you can defy a boycott because of your passion for the club then you must be a right top geezer.

    Kev1664-
    If announcement is takeover is on it’ll be done from the UK. Probably with the new owners standing there. It wont matter what the time is in Dubai.
    If its deals off it could be announced any time.

    So what I think your saying is, that an announcement could be any time? 😉

    this has went on way longer then before. Staveley and kenyon were more less told to out up or stop wasting time. this seems more like Ashley dragging his heels takes him weeks to sign of a transfer deal never mind selling a club. we just need to be patient.

    who was the part who email laura Coleman from pinsent masons. yous cut of my info man haha

    Ctommo,

    Well, yes, but people saying it wont be announced tomorrow or tonight because it’s a day off or its past 5 in Dubai are being a little silly. It would be a uk announcement if the deals on.

    Jimiley, you were also on here whilst that meeting was on. Why weren’t you there? 300 turned up. You’re all mouth pal. You and Stan and them, you should be right in there, but no, you leave it to others. You’re just a keyboard warrior. Pure gobshittery. Does my loyalty to my team bug you that much eh? Is it coz I’m something you never could be?
    I have never once had a dig at anybody who’s given up going – except in retaliation. Know why? Coz I couldn’t give a shit what you do. Mr Nobody. Why should I?
    Why is it I can get on with others who have a different opinion? And that’s all it is. I don’t believe for one second you can beat a billionaire. We’re in the PL ffs. No wonder other fans laugh at you lot. Especially fans in lower divisions who have real cause for complaint.
    If you don’t like what I say, stop bleating on.
    Match going fans, in general, don’t give a toss what armchair fans think. You’re blaming the wrong people. Sky are to blame. Ashley’s to blame. Go after him, not loyal fans. All you’ll do is what Coventry and Blackburn fans have done. Damage the club. Beyond repair unless rich owners go in for them. More chance of him selling if we’re in the PL and filing the ground.
    So, you lot, stop whining at me. I’m not the only fan on here. We’re not to blame. Stop crying over it. Go after Ashley and rip out your Sky TV. They’re keeping him here, not us.
