The Daily Mail reports that Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley called an emergency meeting of the club in the wake of the Geordies’ narrow loss to Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Newcastle have failed to win any of their matches since Kevin Keegan was appointed manager of the club in January and the Magpies have now been sucked into a relegation dogfight. The crisis meeting was held on Sunday and attended by owner Mike Ashley, chairman Chris Mort and manager Kevin Keegan.
Keegan’s future at the club is secure for now but Ashley did want the former England national team coach to guarantee that Newcastle shall play in the Premiership next season too. After all, Ashley spent more than £250million buying Newcastle and clearing debts and has also promised to trickle in more funds in the summer to build up a stronger squad.
