Former Newcastle United boss Graeme Souness believes Alan Pardew won't tolerate interference from Joe Kinnear.

Magpies chief Pardew, who signed an EIGHT-YEAR deal at the club last year, has been told by owner Mike Ashley he will now answer to director of football Joe Kinnear.

And Souey said: "It puts Pardew in a very difficult position. I think it'll end in tears for ­someone."
