The instability at Newcastle United has been branded "scary" by midfielder Nicky Butt.
Astonishingly, Butt has played under 10 different managers, including caretakers, since his arrival on Tyneside in July 2004 - he also had a season on loan at Birmingham under Steve Bruce - and he admits the need for stability has never been more pressing.
The midfielder said: "It's scary. I knew it was a lot, but I didn't realise it was that many.
"It just goes to show the instability we have had at the club.
"Hopefully now we can get that over the next few months and years."
