Owen full of praise for Newcastle gaffer Keegan

Michael Owen has heaped praise on Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan.

With the England striker's future on Tyneside in doubt, Owen was happy to talk up the qualities of Keegan: "He knows his stuff and he can see a player.

"He can see if something needs tweaking or changing. Tactically, he's very good and has been a fantastic appointment. The confidence wasn't high [when he succeeded Allardyce] but if you could ever ask for a man to pick players up, that man is Kevin Keegan. Everyone is enjoying coming into training every day."
