End of an era (part 2)

End of an era (part 2)

Somewhat tardily the club last night eventually revealed that there had been the inevitable parting of the ways between themselves and KK. Trying to apportion the blame on Kev, it seems the now infamous 'Gang of Five` got their wish and ousted possibly the club`s one redeeming character. The LMA confirmed KK`s departure hours before the club with Special K revealing it was the dispute over actually being able to pick his own players that forced his hand.

Club statement

Newcastle United Football Club is sad and disappointed that Kevin Keegan has resigned. Over the last few days the Club has devoted itself to the discussions it has held with Kevin and as a result of those discussions had put together a set of practical suggestions for how to move forward. Today the Club made it clear to Kevin that if he had any outstanding concerns on its proposals, he should raise them with the Club. The Club regrets that Kevin has, instead of taking up that offer, chosen to resign.'

KK`s statement (via LMA)

'I`ve been working desperately hard to find a way forward with the directors, but sadly that has not proved possible. It`s my opinion that a manager must have the right to manage and that clubs should not impose upon any manager any player that he does not want. It remains my fervent wish to see Newcastle United do well in the future and I feel incredibly sorry for the players, staff and most importantly the supporters. I have been left with no choice other than to leave.'
