Solano: Gullit could not handle big Newcastle personalities

Newcastle United legend Nobby Solano says Ruud Gullit was too green to handle the personalities at the club during his time in charge.

Gullit had a disastrous spell at Newcastle, where he famously clashed with Alan Shearer.

"I learnt a lot about the difficulties playing for Ruud Gullit at Newcastle," Solano told the Guardian.

"He was a fantastic coach but too young to be a manager; he wasn't experienced enough to handle big dressing-room personalities like John Barnes, Robert Lee, Duncan Ferguson and Alan Shearer. "
