Watch Kevin Keegan respond to NUFC rumours as he speaks out on Saudi takeover – Video

Kevin Keegan has finally broken his silence on the Saudi-backed takeover at Newcastle United, believing the club has ‘hit the jackpot.’

Speaking at a sold out talk-in event in Cramlington, Keegan started by celebrating Mike Ashley’s exit – the man that kept him away from St James’ Park for so many years.

The 70-year-old also described the new owners as ‘very, very bright people’ and told fans to enjoy our newfound wealth – stressing it’s the only way to get to the top these days – however he did urge supporters to be patient.

Keegan gave a brief response to talk of him returning to the club in some capacity, potentially as an ambassador, but admitted that things haven’t got past a ‘couple of phone calls’ as of yet.

Here’s what King Kev had to say on all of the above, starting with his views on this exciting new era on Tyneside:

Here’s what Keegan then had to say when asked if he’ll be returning to the club in some capacity:

“I’ve had a couple of phone calls.

“That’s where it is at the moment.

“That is it.”

A fan then asked if he spoke Saudi yet, to which Keegan responded – “I’m learning it very quickly!”
