Pardew reiterates 'I'm in charge'

Alan Pardew has reiterated that he remains in charge of Newcastle United amid speculation to the contrary.

• Blog: Where to strengthen?

Pardew has seen his position questioned in recent weeks following the controversial arrival of Joe Kinnear as the club's director of football.

Notable in his absence of late following a brief statement in support of Kinnear, Pardew returned to the club's training ground last week to begin pre-season training as he looks to remedy a poor 2012-13 campaign that saw the club finish 16th in the Premier League.

He told the club's official website: "As the manager of the football club - which I am - I think it's very, very important that the fans and the players know that I am managing this football team. That's my contract and that's what I'm going to do."

With Kinnear described as "the senior executive in charge of all football-related matters", there was an air of ambiguity surrounding the club that Pardew has now looked to rectify.

Along with chief scout Graham Carr, Pardew confirmed the trio have already held extensive discussions over the club's summer transfer plans, with the manager clear in his intentions.

"In terms of the transfers, myself and Graham get together," he told the Chronicle. "We come up with four or five possibilities for each position. Then we have to nail down what is going to work for the team, where I come in.

"Graham's job is to find names. My job is to say, 'I would favour him' for example and say 'Player A', and then Joe's job is to see if the finance is going to work and ultimately sometimes Player A may be out of our reach.

"Then we have to go to Player B or Player C. That's really where the important part of Joe's role comes in. He has to persuade Mike that B is a better proposition than C. I am hoping Joe works well for us. When the owner of the club brings in a football person as a director then I have to pay respect.

"I have to listen. But ultimately it is my decision because I am signed on for seven years to manage this football club. Trust me, anybody who knows me knows that I won't be swayed in any way when it comes to what I think is right. Unless I think there is clarity to it. So I am somebody who works very much on the facts - and not the myth."
