Mad Monk talks NUFC

Mad Monk talks NUFC

Having guided Famagusta into the Champions League and taken his best shot at the likes of Bremen, Panathanaikos and Inter Milan, our former slapheeded nutter has outlined his plans to one day take charge of his favourite English club. Ketsy also admitted it would have to be on his terms though, as the Director of Football lark wouldn`t wash with him. He said:

'Would I like to manage Newcastle United? Why not? If I will get the chance, why not? Who would not want to? As interim manager? No. I don't understand this job. No one asked me so far if you're going to be in charge, but if someone did come to me, I would say this is suicide. You want to destroy your managing career, for maybe six games, if you go there? What's the point?

If you go to the end of the season, OK, I understand that. Because you can show that you are capable of doing the job. But for me to go there now? No, I say again, it is suicide. OK, it may be good money, I hear £100,000 every game, but I want to make a job that has the right base.

I do not like what I hear about this [at Newcastle],' he concluded. Other people were bringing in players and the manager was just sitting there. If I want to be in charge of a team, I don't care for a general manager or whatever. If it's Ronaldinho or Kaka, OK. But a manager knows what he wants.'

Unbelieveable what he's done with that club. Too early for the NUFC job though, wouldn't want him to fail in the current climate.
