Kluivert fears for Newcastle

Former Newcastle United striker Patrick Kluivert fears for his old club after their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

Kluivert, who played for the club in 2004/05, believes Rafa Benitez's side may struggle to survive this season.

He said, "I think Newcastle has a big problem. You can't drop points at teams who are a little bit above you or a little bit below you.

"But they need to struggle and they need to get the points as soon as possible. How do you get the points?

"By winning games, but it's much easier said than done. First you need to have confidence for the players and then hopefully the results will come later."
