Newcastle United boss Joe Kinnear is proud of the work he's achieved since his arrival.
The former Nottingham Forest manager told the News of the World: â€śSince Iâ€™ve been here, weâ€™ve managed to improve and improve and improve.
â€śWhatever happens, I will leave this place in a lot better shape than it was in when I came here. That is for certain.
â€śIâ€™m not going to walk out as a loser. Iâ€™ll walk out as a winner. I said that to Mike Ashley and I believe that more than ever. There were lots of things missing when I got here. The place was like a morgue and I was not used to it.
â€śWimbledon was an exceptional place. It was on fire every day and full of characters. But now I am seeing more characters here by the day. These players are looking for stability, they are looking for a leader, they are looking for somebody to guide them, looking for somebody to give them confidence.
â€śTake Shola Ameobi, for example. He was two seconds away from being sold to Ipswich. He hadnâ€™t scored a goal in two years.
â€śSince I came here, he has got three and is playing out of his skin.
â€śI am very strong and forthright in my views. And weâ€™ve had a look at training as well, myself and Chris Hughton. Weâ€™ve got that into top gear now.
â€śPrevious training was more or less the old five-a-sides and head tennis. There was probably other stuff as well but weâ€™ve tightened up on sessions and I think they have gone down very well.â€ť
