Brazil legend Zico interested in Newcastle post

Brazil legend Zico has revealed he would be interested in succeeding Kevin Keegan as Newcastle United manager.

A number of big names have been linked with the St James' Park hot seat, vacated by Kevin Keegan last week, and now former Japan and Fenerbahce boss Zico has joined that list.

One of the alleged reasons behind Keegan's departure was the club's use of a director of football but Zico, who made 88 appearances for Brazil, has no qualms with the North East side's internal structure.

"The Newcastle job is one that I would be very interested in taking. It would be a privilege and an honour," he told the Daily Mail.

"I've always wanted to experience the Premier League as I believe I could enjoy much success coaching in England.

"I am used to working alongside technical directors so this isn't an issue for me. It's normal for me to work in those conditions."

The former Brazilian international enhanced his reputation in Europe after leading Fenerbahce to the quarter-finals of last season's Champions League and, although his appointment is unlikely to appease the Geordie faithful, he is viewed as one of the biggest names in the game.
