Newcastle manager Pardew: Kinnear not treading on toes

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says football chief Joe Kinnear is not interfering with his work.

Pardew says he's working well with Kinnear.

"Joe absolutely does not interfere in my management of the team," Pardew told the London Evening Standard. "Being a football manager of this sort of club and, with Joe an ex-manager [in 2009 when Newcastle went down], there can be no crossover.

"There can be no clouding or greying of the issue. I'm the football manager. I make all the football decisions that evolve around the game that's being played on a Saturday.

"In terms of the transfers, that's a different story. He's going to have an opinion. I don't have a problem with that."
