Club confirm new blood

Club confirm new blood

Confirmation from the club came this lunchtime when they announced the signing of three management style staff to work at the club. Obviously Dennis Wise we`re all familiar with but Tony Jiminez and Jeff Vetere are a pair of complete unknowns. The club said:

Newcastle United announces that Dennis Wise has agreed to join the Club in the role of Executive Director (Football).

Also joining the Club are Tony Jimenez as Vice President (Player Recruitment) and Jeff Vetere, who joins from Real Madrid in the position of Technical Coordinator.

Dennis will assist the Board on football-related matters, including the development of the Club`s Academy and player recruitment. He will report to the Chairman. Tony and Jeff will also assist in player recruitment.

The arrival of these three new recruits follows on from the recent appointment of Kevin Keegan as manager. Kevin will be responsible for all matters related to the First Team.


Chairman Chris Mort said:

"This is all part of the vision that recently helped us to secure Kevin Keegan`s return to the Club as manager.

Two of the conclusions of our strategic review, since acquiring the Club, were that the Club would benefit from having a football person involved at Board level, which it has not had historically, and that further senior resources are needed for recruiting players of the highest quality from this country and further afield.

Dennis would like to move away from day-to-day football management to a Board role and, with his considerable energy and intelligence, we believe he will do very well in this new position.

With Kevin able to devote his efforts to developing and running the first team squad, Dennis, Tony and Jeff will each help us to secure success for Newcastle United Football Club at all levels and for the long-term. One or two further key appointments will follow in the months ahead."

First kick in the nuts for Keegan, he puts a cash request to the board to buy some new players and instead gets a boss with two offsiders to do that very job. Shut up Kevin said Mort get on with the job of coaching what you've got and leave the important stuff like recruitment to the new boys. FUNNY.
