Pressure On Hughton After ANOTHER Bust Up?
Published : 29 Mar 2010 13:24:05
Despite reports of ANOTHER bust up on the training ground ... Chris Hughton insists he fully expects to remain as Newcastle manager next season. Hughton continues to refuse to talk about rumours of unrest in the camp and a major split between players ... as it was made public yesterday there is a kind of "mafia" influence in the camp lead by three or four Toon stars. Speculation has surfaced that Hughton 'let's them get on with it' and some have even questioned who is running team affairs. We are top of the league - set for promotion - so why IS there so much concern over Hughton's future? Is it the London press spreading rumours suggestingowner Mike Ashley could decide to look for a more experienced manager if the Magpies secure promotion back to the Premier League? Because we continue to be an easy target for the London-based press. Hughton: "I have a contract that runs for another season after this one, so I don't see any reason at this moment why I wouldn't be manager. "All of the job is a challenge - from what you do on the coaching side, to the management side and dealing with the issues you have to deal with. "It all comes in one package. If you don't enjoy that challenge, you shouldn't be here."
