According to Death, "We are creating a management structure here at this fantastic football club that will be second only to the top teams in the whole world. I'm thinking here of clubs like Sampdoria and Heerevonian etc. Dennis will work with Dennis and report directly to me and I will pop down and see Kevin if he has time,"
Newcastle currently have a backroom staff of 56, including a full team of ballroom dancers and specialist manicurists and hair stylists.
"I've always worked well with Dennis," said Dennis.
