As expected Joe Kinnear has extended his NUFC contract for another month and boy is he a happy chap. Praising the club to the hilt, JFK is delighted to see that his reputation and footballing management career are getting repaired, after many failed interviews due to ongoing and unfounded concerns over his health. He said:
"I will be signing a new contract, but it will be for another month. It's a monthly situation because I know they are in talks - who with, I have no idea - but they are in talks, it is just like a rolling contract, one month after another month, and then take it from there.
During the week, there were three or four managers mentioned. Gerard Houllier - there were so many, I lost count. Sven-Goran Eriksson was in there as well. I don't know, really. There are so many consortiums. My missus rang me and said, 'There's a new one come in tonight'.
It's amazing the coverage they are getting because when I was down in London, you got a little bit about Newcastle.' I love it. It's the best thing I have ever done, it really is. I have tried on numerous occasions to get myself back in. All the interviews that I'd had, I had asked if I could just make a statement and have them to listen to what I had to say.
But it was, 'How's your heart?', 'How's your medical situation?', so really, I was written off, to be honest. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to let everybody know I am back in the business. If it's not to be at Newcastle, I understand that, if Kevin [Keegan] is on his way back. But you never know what will happen to me, if I do a good job here, where it is going to take me. I have got to make sure a do a really great job here for the short period of time I am here."
