'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kinnear demands Ashley assurance

After the revelation that he has been offered a new contract, Joe Kinnear has stated that he is unlikely to agree to any new deal until Mike Ashley gives him positive assurances on both the direction of the club and the amount of capital he will have to spend. Speaking to the press, Kinnear said:



"I have to be aware of which direction the club wants to go in. People say we`re too good to go down, but from the day I walked in here nothing`s changed. We`re fighting a relegation battle. I knew that from day one, but I didn`t expect to be in this position with so many horrendous long-term injuries. I sit down and talk to them (Ashley and Llambias) about my ideas. I want to bring my own players in.


There`s a fair amount of players we need at the moment, and I want to make sure I`m in a position to do that. We need to look at the situation and say 'where do we go from here?` That`s the only thing I need to sort out. Can I bring in the players I want - and can I get rid of the players that I don`t want?


It`s a fantastic club, there`s no question about that, but we need to give the fans what they want. I`ve got (an offer of) two- and-a-half years and I`m just mulling it over. I`ll make that decision later on. I`ve got it in writing, and am quite happy with everything else, but there`s one or two things I want to sort out."
