Kinnear would move 'upstairs' to remain with Newcastle

Newcastle boss Joe Kinnear is recovering from heart surgery and with Chris Hughton in temporary charge would be prepared to accept a role away from the touchline at St James' Park. He told the Newcastle Chronicle: "I'm just desperate to be back and do what I can for Newcastle.

"I still think we have enough quality players to see us through this.

"Obviously I look forward to next season, and I want to say that what's happening now will never happen again.

"Whatever happens, I will have an input. It's as simple as that.

"If I can't do certain things, I will be speaking to staff and players at the club and working at the training ground during the week.

"I'll still have a major say to the players too. We'll work it that way."
