Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has insisted that he has no problems working within the new management structure set up by the club’s owner Mike Ashley according to The Express.

Ashely surprised many within the footballing world when he announced the appointment of Joe Kinnear as Director of Football at the club.

The news clearly came as a disappointment to managing director Derek Llambias, who promptly resigned the next day and was met with dismay by many fans of the Magpies.

Kinnear did not shower himself in glory after giving an interview with talkSport where he wildly exaggerated his past achievements and got many of the current squad’s names wrong.

Yohan Cabaye is thought to have been especially unhappy after Kinner referred to him as Yohan ‘Kebab’.

Kinnear went on to claim that the final decision on transfer deals would lie with him, prompting speculation regarding the futures of Pardew, and chief scout Graham Carr, who had previously been given such responsibilities before.

But Pardew has insisted that he is open-minded about the new management structure and is keen to see how it works.

Pardew expressed his desire to improve on last season’s performance and indicated that he was willing to integrate Kinnear at the club should he have a positive impact in pursuit of that goal.
