Magpies Retain Kinnear

NEWCASTLE: Newcastle is retaining manager Joe Kinnear until the end of the season, ending the lame duck status brought about by his month-by-month contract.

The deal is a reward for Kinnear reviving the team’s fortunes since being brought in by owner Mike Ashley as a stopgap manager following Kevin Keegan’s resignation in September while he searched for a buyer.

“Ever since I came to Newcastle United I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience,” Kinnear said Friday. “The players have been great to work with and the fans have made me feel at home since day one. We have a big challenge ahead of us for the rest of the season but together I’m confident we will make good progress.”
