Kinnear prepares to take a back seat

Kinnear prepares to take a back seat

Unsurprisingly Joe Kinnear has given his broadest hint yet that his role at SJP might be in the corridors of power and not prowling the touchline. Following his triple heart bypass surgery, our stand in manager elect has now gone on record to suggest that the doctors might have already called time on his dugout career. Kinnear said:

'I'm just desperate to be back and do what I can for Newcastle. I still think we have enough quality players to see us through this. Obviously I look forward to next season, and I want to say that what's happening now will never happen again.

Whatever happens, I will have an input. It's as simple as that. If I can't do certain things, I will be speaking to staff and players at the club and working at the training ground during the week. I'll still have a major say to the players too. We'll work it that way.'

Either way, sacking Dennis Wise off would be fantastic.
