John Carver’s plea for an end to managerial uncertainty at Newcastle

IN CHARGE ... John Carver.
IN CHARGE ... John Carver.

JOHN Carver’s called on Newcastle United’s hierarchy to put an end to the uncertainty – and make a decision on a new head coach.

Caretaker manager Carver fears his chance of succeeding Alan Pardew at St James’s Park has gone.

Newcastle were beaten 2-1 by Southampton at St James’s Park tonight.

Asked if he wanted an end to the uncertainty, Carver said: “Absolutely, I think everybody does.

“I think I do, I think all the staff do, I think all the players do, I think the crowd certainly does and I am sure you guys do, so yes.”

Carver was angered by the failure of referee Robert Madley to award a late penalty when Jose Fonte handled a shot from United substitute Emmanuel Riviere.
