Jim White claims new NUFC ‘exclusive’ – Saudis now looking to appoint temporary manager?

Speaking live on talkSPORT in the last few moments, Jim White has made some big claims about the managerial situation at Newcastle United.

According to the former Sky Sports host, the new owners are now looking for a ‘temporary’ manager who can keep the club up this season before they appoint a more long-term option next summer.

White claims that the Saudis are are ‘extremely concerned’ about the threat of relegation and are eyeing an ‘English manager’ with ‘Premier League experience.’

He then states that they could then ‘go big’ next summer and target a more exciting, forward thinking ‘foreign manager’ as the new owners look to ‘reboot’ the club in 2022.

Watch what he’s had to say below:

White has made a host of big claims over the past few years and hasn’t always been on the money, so I’d take this with a pinch of salt.

Things may have changed and he may have got wind of that, however it was widely reported just last night that Paulo Fonseca, Lucien Favre and Roberto Martinez were all in the frame, with the former a serious contender after talks.

With an almost retired Roy Hodgson recommended by talkSPORT pundits in recent days and many Toon fans hoping to see a more fresh and forward-thinking coach arrive on Tyneside, let’s hope we get our next move right and don’t appoint another dinosaur.

The 74-year-old may well sort out defence and keep us up, but it’s a slippery slope that sometimes leads to Sam Allardyce if you start looking for available Englishmen with Premier League experience!

  1. It has became entirely apparent that Jim White knows absolutely sweet FA about what is going on or what the plan is of our new owners.
    But by perching those specs on the end of his nose, raise his left hand to his chin and reading what could well be the Talksport lunch order for all we know – speaking with some level of confidence, he has everyone believing he is in the know.

    Jim White has as much of a clue as the rest of us … s0d all!!.

  2. Good old Sam, the villa he bought from the payoff last time he was here must need renovating. Get him in 🤣🤣.
    He’ll soon have a new neighbour in Bruce. Let’s get it right this time.

  3. If they need an English Manager who is available, has lots of prem experience and a reputation for not getting relegated then there can be only one obvious candidate.
    Fortunately he’s just been released by his old club.
    The man they should talk to is Steve Bruce!
