St. James Park, Newcastle: The news on the Tyne, is that Kevin Keegan has made it known;
- "I'll just love it if I become Newcastle United Manager for a THIRD time!"
Kevin Keegan was awarded £2 million (plus interest accrued) in severance clauses in his previous Newcastle United contract and all Keegan's legal and associated costs incurred were paid by Newcastle United as a result of the tribunal.
Kevin Keegan has stated after the hearing he still wants to manage in the top flight of football, and would consider returning to his position at Newcastle United.
Whether Mike Ashley, the owner of Newcastle United would consider his return it is not sure, but if he does hopefully he won't countenance the previous fiasco!
Previously, it was revealed at the Industrial Tribunal that Director of Football, Dennis Wise asked Keegan to sign Ignacio González by watching him "on You Tube". In October 2009, the tribunal ruled in favour of Keegan, agreeing that Newcastle United had constructively dismissed him by insisting on the signing of midfielder Ignacio González on loan completely against his wishes.
