Nobby Solano says he would love to return to Newcastle as a coach

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.

“I really hope the takeover happens. I would see what happens in the future, I would love to come back one day. But I just hope this takeover happens. But for sure, ask any player that wants to be a part of the club, I’d be very happy to do that,” Solano said.

TBR’s view – Solano should be seriously considered for Toon role

Newcastle’s soon-to-be owners are expected to come in and look to take the club on a par with Manchester City over the next decade. But remaining in touch with the city of Newcastle and its supporters is just as important.

New players will be bought, new managers will be hired. But keeping that feeling of knowing what it means to be a Toon supporter and how big the club is in the north east is crucial. Solano knows exactly how that feels.

Adding him to the coaching staff will see a sense of normality remain in a soon-to-be, topsy-turvy environment.
