Hughton cool over job talk

16 Oct 2009 - 11:23:11

Newcastle United's caretaker manager Chris Hughton has reacted calmly to speculation that he could be handed the job on a more permanent basis.

Hughton has steadied the ship at St James' Park following the club's relegation last season, with the Magpies currently top of the Championship table.

"It has been a normal week and the speculation about my future is something I have got used to," Hughton told The Journal.

"However, that is not the important thing. The important thing is being able to focus on football matches and up until this stage we have been very much able to do just that.

"Always the appropriate thing for me to say is I am very happy to do this job for as long as I am asked to do it.

"Any publicity like that is nice and always flattering, but the only things we can really deal with are facts.

"We are where we are and until we are told anything different we just crack on as per normal."
