According to Dean Jones, Newcastle United offered former MLS flop Anthony Hudson a ‘coaching role’ at the club last week.
This comes just after news that Steve Bruce is now Mike Ashleys’ ‘no.1’ target to replace Rafa Benitez, with the Bleacher Report journalist now claiming that Hudson was offered a role last week that would see him become part of the new backroom staff at the club.
Hudson had been the head coach of the New Zealand national side and has recently been sacked by US side Colorado Rapids after a woeful spell in the MLS, with TEAMtalk claiming that he was interviewed by Lee Charnley at the back end of June.
Time will tell if he’s going to accept the role (presuming these new claims are even true!) and whether this could see him work as part of Steve Bruce’s coaching staff should he get the manager’s job, however it would be yet another underwhelming appointment.
This train-wreck of a summer knows no bounds.
