Kinnear charged by FA, mulls over new deal

Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear and Hull manager Phil Brown have been charged with improper conduct following their touchline confrontation at St James' Park on January 14, the Football Association have confirmed.

The pair squared up to each other following Magpies defender Fabricio Coloccini's 22nd-minute tackle on Hull forward Daniel Cousin, and have been given until February 3 to respond to the charge.

Kinnear, commenting on the incident after the game on January 14, said: ''He [Brown] came across. He was having a rant, more than anything.

''He didn't actually say anything to me, he was having a rant at [Kinnear's number two] Chris [Hughton] - and he wasn't saying too many pleasant things to him. It was as simple as that.

''I just said 'enough'. That's all I said. I don't know what the trouble was with the ref (Phil Dowd). 'I just said 'cool it and call it a day'. I sent Chris to sit down and as he [Brown] came across and the referee came running over.

''I don't know whether my reputation precedes me, but if you look at the video, what I did do was stand my ground, I didn't do anything else.''

Meanwhile, the Magpies' boss has refused to commit himself to agreeing a new contract offer and insists he wants to create his own team.

Kinnear's current deal is due to expire at the end of the season, and he recently revealed owner Mike Ashley has offered him a "very lucrative" contract.

The former Wimbledon chief, who was initially brought to Tyneside on an interim basis, is keen to ensure he has the power to create his own team, as the transfer window has only increased the uncertainty at St James' Park with Shay Given linked with a move, Michael Owen failing to agree a contract and 11 senior players out through injury.

Kinnear has already said he wants to build his own team and he said: ''Can I bring in the players I want - and can I get rid of the players I don't want?

''I've got an offer of a two-and-a-half year contract here and I'm just mulling it over.

''I'll make that decision later. I've got the offer in writing and I'm quite happy with everything except one or two things I want to sort out.''

The Magpies are two points off the relegation zone and have won just twice in the last 11 games.
