Craig Hope has now revealed a new potential appointment at Newcastle United after the takeover was announced on Thursday evening.
The Lowdown: Takeover done
The St. James’ Park faithful have now officially announced the takeover of the North East club by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium on their official website.
It means that Mike Ashley has now finally left, as a new board comes in with a new direction which will hopefully align more with where the fans expect the club to go.
The Latest: McParland considered
As per Hope, former scout and academy chief at Liverpool, Frank McParland, is now among a number of names being considered for a role within the new set-up at the Toon.
The Verdict: No brainer
With a new direction for the club mapped out, Newcastle should look no further than hiring McParland, either in a recruiting role or as a director.
He is a vastly experienced specialist in recruitment, and has worked previously with Watford, Brentford, Burnley and Rangers, as well as Liverpool (i).
Should Newcastle hire McParland?
McParland worked as a director of football at both Brentford and Watford, and he spent six years as sporting director at Burnley (i), showing that he is more than capable of fulfilling any kind of major role that the new owners wish.
Nonetheless, his experience and versatility should make him one of the top candidates.
