'If It's Football, It's Vital'

KK on keeps

As mirrored by many of his PL predecessors, King Kev has spoken out in support of his two goalkeepers, calling them the best one and two in the league. Kev said:

'I think we`ve got the best pair of goalkeepers in the Premier League, I honestly do. We`re very lucky to have them. I don`t know every pair of goalkeepers at every club in the division, but I`ve seen or worked with most of them during my time as a manager. I signed Steve Harper as a young boy and I liked him then and I like him now. He will get his chances, I`m sure of that.

He`s the sort of guy that, if you had a daughter, you`d be happy if she brought him home to meet you. I suppose Shay has just got the edge over him because he has so much experience. He has played so many games, not just with Newcastle United, but with Blackburn Rovers before that and with the Republic of Ireland of course.

We`ve also got a couple of young goalkeepers at the club at the moment, Fraser Forster and a young Swedish lad called Ole Soderberg who has been training with the first-team squad. They are both learning from Steve and Shay, so we`re very well off in that position.'
