Damien Duff has said that he is fully sure that Kevin Keegan will still be in charge on the Toon next season: 'Obviously the gaffer was missing for a couple of days earlier in the week because he had go to meet the owners,' Duff told Irish reporters. 'I'm only going on what I saw on Match of the Day because he hasn't spoken to us about it and we're only going on what we read in the papers.
'Obviously, anything can happen up there, even at the best of times. But we just have to worry about ourselves and get on with it. As far as I'm concerned, the gaffer will be there next year.'
The Ireland international has been plagued by injuries since he joined the Toon from Chelsea in 2006, but despite a sometimes uncertain future he is determined to prove his worth and replay the faith show in him, he added: 'I've had a disastrous time there because of injuries so it'd be nice (to find his best form).
'Things haven't worked out for me but I'll always stand by my decision to go there. I still wouldn't change anything.
'It's been tough. This time last year I was lying in a hospital bed and the surgeon said then it'd be a year before you feel remotely like your old self.
'And it's more or less a year to the day, so if there is a bonus to be had from this season, it's that this time last year I was worried about ever playing again. But now I am back playing.'

The Toon are being heavily linked with his Irish international teammate Richard Dunne, and he couldn't praise him high enough: 'I love Richie. He just gets better and better each year.
'He's been immense for City for as long as I can remember now. He's been a great player for his club and his country. He's also a great lad, too.'
Will the Toon see the best of Duff, or have his injury problems taken the best from him? Also do you think Keegan will be able to tempt Dunne to Tyneside?
