Newcastle seeking stability with long-term Pardew deal


Bookmark and Share

Friday 28 September 2012

Newcastle United managing director Derek Llambias hopes the eight year contract given to manager Alan Pardew once and for all ends the instability that has plagued the Magpies in recent years, according to the Daily Mirror.



Since the late Sir Bobby Robson was sacked by the club’s previous owners in 2004, there have been eight managers in as many years passing through the Sports Direct Arena, ending with Pardew.


Graeme Souness replaced Robson and lasted two years in the post, followed by Glenn Roeder, Sam Allardyce, Kevin Keegan, Joe Kinnear and Alan Shearer. Chris Hughton was appointed the permanent manager after the side was relegated in 2009 and lasted until late 2010 when he was removed to make way for Pardew.


But having taken Newcastle to fifth place last season the club’s hierarchy has seen fit to extend Pardew’s deal and completely invest in him as the manager for the long-term, with 2020 the date of expiration on the ex-Reading boss’ new contract.


Llambias said: “The relationship I have with Alan is tremendous and with [chief scout and under a similar contract] Graham Carr and [assistant manager] John Carver. It just works for us so why shouldn't we secure it for the future?


It will reflect on the pitch, the fans will be happier, there won't be all that chatter if the team goes through a bad patch, so it's a big step. I don't think it's really been done before. And also it's a contract which is a normal contract for a top manager in the Premier League.
