Newcastle manager John Carver will meet the supporters he was involved in an argument with during the Magpies defeat to Swansea City on the weekend, reports Sky Sports.
The North-East club have endured a woeful run of form in recent weeks, losing seven Premier League games in a row. And with Newcastle’s top-flight status in doubt following their consecutive defeats, supporters have become angry at interim manager John Carver.
The United fans feel the club are going backwards in his hands, and aren’t convinced the coach can turn their form around. They have spiralled down the table in 2015, and are reaching a crisis point.
Following the defeat to Swansea, Carver was being accused of abusing two supporters, with some reporting it as a heated exchange. He’s set to meet up with the two fans in question to discuss their argument in more formal surroundings.
The Newcastle boss said in a press conference that he would have no problem meeting the aforementioned supporters in a bid to clear up their grievances, and that was confirmed when said fan tweeted confirmation of an invite to meet up with the boss.
Supporter Allen O’Connell said: “I’ve been invited to the training ground on Friday to meet Carver and the players and watch a bit of training and sit down and talk to Carver, which is a massive thing to me even with everything going on at the club.”
