Roeder takes Magpies swipe

04 Sep 2008 - 10:45:10

Former boss Glenn Roeder has labelled Newcastle United 'a tragedy' following the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the future of manager Kevin Keegan.

The Magpies have yet to officially clarify the future of Keegan following a statement that the unsettled manager has neither resigned or being sacked.

Roeder spent 15 months in the St James' Park hot-seat before being sacked in March 2007.

But after being one of 11 either full-time or caretaker managers in the 11 years between Keegan's first and second spells at the helm, the now Norwich City chief has offered a damning verdict on his former employers.

"The club is a tragedy and it goes from one disaster to another," he told BBC Radio Five Live. "There's no stability at the club and I don't think there has been for a long time.

"They go from one manager to another and the people who suffer the most are the most important people, the supporters.

"When they talk about Newcastle being a great club, it's only great for one reason, because it has great supporters."
