Newcastle United boss John Carver has been quoted by the Northern Echo explaining why he’s the man to get the club out of trouble in the Premier League.
A poor run of results has seen the Magpies slip down to 15th in the table where they are now just three points ahead of Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa.
Carver has admitted that the club are in trouble at the moment, but after a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham, he remains adamant that he’s the man to turn things around.
“This is the most difficult situation I’ve ever been in, but I’m a fighter and I’m not going to shirk anything,” said Carver.
“We will take the stick and the responsibility because that’s the type of person I am. I’m not going to give up on it and I have enough experience to deal with the situation.”
Newcastle need to find a way to get back to basics to secure some more positive results over the next few weeks.
One of the only encouraging aspects of Carver as the team’s leader is the fact that he’s showing a willingness to fight and scrap to try and improve things.
There is plenty of discontent and ill feeling at St James’ Park right now, but that would just be intensified if Carver showed no desire to try and improve the situation.
The side are not playing well and next up for the side is a home match against Swansea, who are one of the best sides in the Premier League when it comes to controlling the ball and wearing sides down.
