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

007 After 'Odd-Job' Freddy

Sacked Newcastle assistant manager Kevin Bond is furious that chairman Freddy Shepherd failed to back him in his hour of need.

Mr Shepherd, who was 'nailed' himself by an undercover crew from the News Of The World, has been the first (and only one) to act after the Panorama TV programme last week.

Bond: 'I'm so disappointed with Newcastle. When I needed support, I've had none. They have taken no time for reflection, they've been judge and jury and I've been the only person to have lost my job out of this.

'I intend to pursue all legal avenues to vindicate my reputation and restore my career and livelihood. I am extremely disappointed that Newcastle have chosen to terminate my contract without carrying out any proper investigation into the allegations made against me in the Panorama programme.

'My lawyers will shortly be going to court to compel the BBC to release full transcripts of the recordings. Rather than waiting for this and the outcome of any FA investigation, Newcastle have made their decision solely on the basis of a few sentences carefully selected and edited by Panorama.'
