Magpies' Given unsure over Kinnear appointment

Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given has said he is unsure over the appointment of Joe Kinnear as the club's new manager.

As one of the team's senior players, Given believes he should have been told about the appointment and concedes that the move will not go down well with the club's supporters.

"Am I pleased? No," Given told The Sun. "The club is still up for sale and we haven't got a permanent manager so I wouldn't say pleased.

"It's going somewhere I suppose but I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know the man. I've met him and said hello but that's about it.

"The most important thing for the players is to concentrate on Blackburn and on Monday we'll probably meet him. I don't know what to say but in an ideal world we'd like the club sorted out and a permanent manager.

"Joe Kinnear's here just to oversee things until we get one. It is not an ideal situation. No senior players were asked about this as far as I know. I'd class myself as a senior player and no one has told me anything.

"The owner's come out and said he wants to sell the club, so I think the sooner the better so we can move forward. There's a lot of uncertainty around the club and it's not helping anyone."

Asked if he would like to see Kevin Keegan return, Given said: "I didn't want to see him leave, so that answers that. It doesn't matter if the new manager or owner comes in next week, nothing can be done until January."

Meanwhile, former Wimbledon captain Vinnie Jones says he jump at the chance of helping old pal Kinnear at St James' Park.

"I'd be back in England like a shot if Joe wanted any help," Jones told The Sun.

"I'm sure he will be able to turn the club around and if he feels I'd be able to contribute in any way, I'd get the next plane back from LA."

Meanwhile Kinnear has told the players they cannot use the club's off-field turmoil as an excuse for poor performances on the pitch.

''It's the performances that matter and players have to stand up. They can't hide behind the fact that the club is up for sale,'' he told BBC's Football Focus.

''I've told the players not to worry about anything else that's going on but just to get out there and play.''

Kinnear admitted he would have loved to have had a permanent appointment but, having been out of the game for more than four years, was realistic enough to know he could not turn down the opportunity.

''Nobody else wants me. Mike Ashley rang me the other night. It's a bolt out of the blue,'' he added.

''I've got to prove to people that I can do a good job. It's an opportunity to put myself back on the map.''
