Keegan quits Newcastle

Friday, September 5, 2008

Kevin Keegan quit as Newcastle manager for a second time after blaming Dennis Wise for driving him out.

King Kev had disagreed with club's player-transfer policy as football director Wise bought him players he did not want.

Rumors spread also saying owner Mike Ashley put every player — including Michael Owen — up for sale.

Keegan returned to Newcastle as manager in January, replacing Sam Allardyce, who was fired after less than eight months in charge.

Furious Toon fans are now calling for sportswear tycoon Ashley and unpopular Wise to quit Tyneside for good.

Frank Gilmour, chairman of the Independent Newcastle United Supporters’ Association, stated: "Ashley doesn’t realise the love that man Keegan has for this football club. I don’t think he’ll ever be forgiven for this."

Toon legend Chris Waddle believes Ashley, who bought the club in June 2007 for £133 million, should watch the club’s next game against Hull in a glass box.

Another Newcastle legend Glenn Roeder even labelled the club a ‘tragedy that goes from one disaster to another’.

The 52-year-old Norwich manager said: "There’s no stability at the club. When they talk about Newcastle being a great club, it’s great for one reason — because it has great supporters."
