Newcastle chief Kinnear: I'll be sacked before Pardew

Newcastle United director of football Joe Kinnear insists he'll get the boot before Alan Pardew should the arrangement go wrong.

Kinnear insists he won't be interfering in first-team matters.

Kinnear said: "I'll have the job of over-looking the reserves and youth team to see where we are progressing, as well as being chief advisor to the chairman Mike Ashley.

"If things are going wrong, I am accountable and he'll be coming through me, not anybody else. Everybody thinks Pardew is under pressure. He's not. I am.

"I could get sacked."
