Kevin Keegan napustio je mesto manager-a Newcastle United-a , 04.09.2008.Vest je saopštena preko LMA(League Manager's Association):

"I’ve been working desperately hard to find a way forward with the directors, but sadly that has not proved possible.

"It’s my opinion that a manager must have the right to manage and that clubs should not impose upon any manager any player that he does not want."

"It remains my fervent wish to see Newcastle United do well in the future and I feel incredibly sorry for the players, staff and most importantly the supporters. I have been left with no choice other than to leave.

Klubu je trebalo čitavih dva sata da izda slično saopštenje:

"Newcastle United Football Club is sad and disappointed that Kevin Keegan has resigned.

"Over the last few days the Club has devoted itself to the discussions it has held with Kevin and as a result of those discussions had put together a set of practical suggestions for how to move forward.

"Today the Club made it clear to Kevin that if he had any outstanding concerns on its proposals, he should raise them with the Club.

"The Club regrets that Kevin has, instead of taking up that offer, chosen to resign.

Šta će se dalje dešavati sam Bog zna.Očekujemo kao prvo neki vid bojkota na meču protiv Hull City-a.Verujem ako ovakvo stanje ostane , da će i Michael Owen ali i drugi igrači veoma brzo napustiti ovakav Newcastle United.

Verujte mi , još uvek se nisam oporavio od šoka.
