Report: Newcastle wary of long-term contract for new manager

The question of who is the new Newcastle manager is a burning topic in football at the minute, with Steve Bruce having departed the club this week.

Names are being thrown at the job left, right, and centre. However, there does appear to be a narrowing down of names, with Frank Lampard and Paulo Fonseca the two emerging as top contenders. Of course, for now, Graeme Jones will man the ship.

And Jones might end up being in charge even longer, unless PIF and the rest of the consortium involved in the takeover can come to an agreement on who is the new manager at Newcastle.

According to The Telegraph, there is some disagreement among certain members of the board and higher ups at the club. The Telegraph claims that, while Amanda Staveley is keen on Fonseca, there is a preference among some to give the new manager only a short-term deal. At the moment, it’s claimed Fonseca is being offered a long-term contract on £6m-a-year.

In a nutshell, despite other differing reports, Newcastle are nowhere near deciding on is the next manager.

Just when you think an announcement is close, there seems to be a bump in the road. Weirdly with Fonseca involved, it’s almost like Tottenham revisited from the summer.

Frank Lampard wouldn’t be a bad bet either. He’s young enough to keep improving and stick around. He’s also managed Chelsea, so he’s used to pressure.

One thing’s for sure here, and that’s that there is already some butting of heads going off in the Newcastle boardroom. Director of Football, anyone?
