Ex-Newcastle midfielder Geremi puts hand up for manager's job

Former Newcastle United midfielder Geremi has put his hand up for the manager's job.

Geremi - who played for the club from 2007-2009 - has a plan for the new Saudi-led regime on Tyneside.

And the Cameroon international even thinks he could be the man for the job as the club looks to replace the sacked Steve Bruce.

Geremi said via Ladbrokes: “I have some people in my mind who could come in and manage the team.

“In fact I think I could do something for the club because of my experience. I know the kind of player the club needs right now.

“In this situation, they need to bring in experienced players who can get them out of the relegation zone and safe this season. They need players who can read the game well.

“They need the kind of players who know how to see out games, for example if they're winning 1-0 away from home, they need players who know not to carry on attacking.

“For me, this is where the club needs to strengthen in January: they need leaders.

“I think they should go and get one new signing in defence, two in midfield and one killer striker.

“When you get that spine, you build the rest of the team around those players.

“That's how you keep the team in the Premier League, by bringing in a maximum of five players in the next transfer window."
