Nobby Solano has told Newcastle United fan and writer Steve Wraith on his official YouTube channel that he would “love” to return to The Toon as a coach – 13 years after leaving Newcastle in 2007 to join West Ham.
Solano, 45, enjoyed a stunning career but of the 11 clubs he played for, he spent most of his time at Newcastle during two separate spells. He scored an impressive 48 goals during his 314 league and cup appearances for the Toon.
A takeover is reportedly edging closer this summer with the club’s potential new owners waiting for the Premier League to complete their checks. A transferral of funds between the new owners and Ashley also remains.
Solano spoke with Wraith over the weekend and during the Q&A session, he was asked whether he would consider a return to the club as a coach – given he is Peru’s national team assistant. He stated he would love to do so.
