Money confident of good relationship with Newcastle boss Keegan

Richard Money says he'll be working closely with Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan as the club's new academy chief.

"I'm delighted to be at Newcastle. It's a job with massive potential, but there's a lot of work to do and it's been a whirlwind first three or four weeks," he said.

"People need to understand what my role is. I have come in to oversee everything - to raise the profile of everything that we do, from under nine to the 20-21 year-olds. That encompasses recruitment, it will be structure of the "Kevin Keegan and I will work very closely," he stressed to The Journal. "We have already held discussions and we will continue to do that.

"We want to embark on a process as quickly as possible to ensure that we produce as many first-team players as possible. I'm not sure how quickly that will happen. It's a very long-term process, but there are some things that we can do to speed that up."
