On Mark Hughes’ support for Kevin Keegan

Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan hasn’t led his team to a single victory since he took office and pressure is already mounting on him. The Geordies have been sucked into the relegation mire and they need to start winning.

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes of course is one to believe that Keegan wil deliver the results soon and conveys his faith that KK wouldn’t be sacked. Hughes was himself touted to become the new Newcastle manager when Sam Allardyce was sacked midway through this season and says:

Within a week or so of the last two times we have gone there and won, the manager lost his job. It is not going to happen this time, if we are honest. But in the Premier League results are like gold dust. They are so important to everybody, the future of your club, the demeanour of your fans. Kevin knows the club better than anybody, so he should know what it takes. What you do need is time – you need that in any job. He will be given time, which maybe any other manager might not have been.

Sure, Keegan’s job is fine at the moment and everyone has to agree that Newcastle are just too good to be relegated.
