Report suggests two reasons Newcastle have delayed decision over manager

Newcastle Utd - Gate

Newcastle United don't appear to be in any rush to appoint their next manager.

The Chronicle has reported two reasons for a delay in Newcastle United announcing who will be the club’s manager heading into next season.

Newcastle managed to retain their Premier League status with a dramatic win against West Ham United last weekend, but it remains unclear as to whether John Carver will be the man leading the club next year.

The paper suggests the fact that Carver and his staff being on holiday, along with caution from Lee Charnley, who doesn’t want to appoint the wrong manager, are the two mains reasons the Magpies haven’t pushed on to sort out the key position.

Whoever leads the club next season, it’s important they are given enough time this summer to make changes with players coming in and players asked to leave.

Newcastle need to try and create a situation where the struggles of last season don’t repeat themselves and that will come with improvements in the squad and a positive appointment in terms of the boss.

It’s important to stress that there is still enough time for an appointment to be made before the next transfer window opens, which would help the club get into a good position by pre-season.
