Ruud Remarks

Ruud Remarks

Speaking from an outsider's perspective, Ruud Gullit, our former boss, has backed Sam Allardyce to be the man to solve the long running issues with egos and silverware. He was even complementary about the chairman:

'They need some quality players there. Not a whole lot, but some quality players. Some local boys are very important - I don't agree with the whole 'foreign legion' and if they find the right mixture. Discipline is very important, and Sam is very good in discipline so I think he is the right man in the right place.

Michael Owen has been injured all the time. There has been talk about him leaving but I don't know why he would leave because he's done nothing yet. This is the first time for him to show how good he is.

I had a marvellous time at Newcastle, the crowd were excellent, all the facilities are there. It was a difficult time but a nice experience. Expectation is very high there. It's difficult for them, the great players go to Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and it can sometimes be difficult to get the right player. Freddy Shepherd was easy to work with, I had a good time with him and he backed me up to the end. I just took the decision (to quit) and said 'look, it's better that you do it with another coach'.'
