Newcastle: Unai Emery could be appointed before Brighton clash

Newcastle: Unai Emery could be appointed before Brighton clash -Newcastle United News

It looks as if Unai Emery may be appointed as Newcastle United manager before next weekend’s clash with Brighton and Hove Albion, according to Liam Kennedy. 

The lowdown

Newcastle now appear to be closing in on a permanent replacement for Steve Bruce, who was relieved of his duties on 20 October.

The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards had reported over the weekend that the club’s new owners wanted a new manager installed prior to the upcoming international break.

The Magpies, who are 19th in the Premier League, will resume their search for a first win of the season when they travel to the Amex Stadium on Saturday evening.

The latest

In a tweet, Newcastle World editor Kennedy wrote: “In before Brighton? Seems to be heading that way at the moment.”

He also gave his backing for the appointment, describing it as a ‘statement of intent’ and ‘a decision definitely worth waiting for’.

Kennedy added that Emery’s CV, which includes four Europa League triumphs and a Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain, ‘more than speaks for itself’.

The verdict

Newcastle indicated at the weekend that they wanted to conclude their search swiftly, and it looks like they’re about to do just that.

If he is appointed, Emery may not have enough time to make a meaningful impression before the then, but having in him in place before the two-week break in the season could be crucial.

Let’s not forget, Newcastle are in desperate need of points. As it stands, there’s a very real possibility that one of the richest clubs in the world drops into the Championship.

In other news, will Emery sanction this potential January signing?
