KK Says: 'I'm Going Nowhere'

KK Says: 'I'm Going Nowhere'

In typical media style fashion many areas have built Kevin Keegan's meeting with Mike Ashley up as a major event, and an event that could leave Keegan's position as Toon boss under threat following his outburst against Chelsea, but he insists that he is at St James' to stay, and for at least three more years: 'I've got three years left and I am looking forward to the next three years. At least you know I'll only be 60 then,' Keegan told the Daily Mail.

He did however stick by what he said earlier in the week, clarifying the way some of what he said might have been misinterpreted, but insists that he will carry on telling it as it is: 'I wasn't asked about the top four, I was asked 'how do you think you fared today against Chelsea'?, and 'how far away were we from that'?

'That was the question I was asked and I said 'a million miles'. You can go round and get thousands of opinions from the fans, who I think are always a good barometer.

'You can go to the fans, not just of Newcastle United, but of most other clubs and say 'can your club get into the top four next year'? They would probably say 'we would like to think so, but if we are honest, that top four has been the same for a long time'.

'But what I expressed was my view, and I stick by it.

'The majority of people you talk to who have a knowledge of the game, they realise by looking back over the last six years that that top four has been the same.'

The knife seems to be being stuck in to Keegan at every given moment, the way his comments were twisted being the most recent example. The amount of support he is getting from others managers merely goes to show what he had said was right.

All credit to Keegan for sticking to his guns, he was honest with what he had said anyway, no matter how much it might have been taken out of context, and anyone doubting what he said as wrong is wrong themselves!
