John Carver has admitted that he would be forced out of Newcastle in one situation.
Speaking to the Chronicle, Carver has admitted that if not backed in the transfer market he will be forced to depart St James' Park.
He said: “Let me tell you something, if I didn’t have enough belief in what they were trying to do and the promises they’ve said about the summer, then yes I would walk away.
“I know what work is being done and they’ve said it, they’ve gone on record.”
There are still no confirmations as to whether Carver will be offered a full-time role in charge of the Magpies at the end of the season, and the club’s poor form will certainly not help him.
The Tyneside club have won just two of Carver’s nine games in charge, losing five and drawing the other two. He has preached ultra-attacking and entertaining football without delivering it, and there is now a real chance that the Magpies may get relegated - something that would not have happened under Alan Pardew.
Admittedly, Carver has been hit hard by a number of injuries and suspensions to key players, and he has been forced to create a rag-tag playing squad. He is obviously looking forward to the transfer window, if he is still in charge, and has been promised backing by the likes of Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley.
It is this kind of backing that could see Newcastle return to the upper echelons of English football, and restore the pride that once existed around the football club. Whether that is with Carver in charge remains to be seen, but Ashley and Charnley surely need to fulfil their promise of support in the transfer market.
