Newcastle United have appointed current caretaker boss John Carver as the club’s new head, until the conclusion of the 2014-2015 season. Carver has served as an assistant coach at Newcastle for nearly a decade in two separate spells, and has taken charge of the first team after Alan Pardew’s departure from Newcastle for Crystal Palace, in early January. Carver has drawn one and lost three during his spell as caretaker boss, and will soon be looking for his first win against Hull on the weekend. He will now take on his former boss Pardew, at Crystal Palace on February 11.The caretaker had made it substantially clear that he wanted the job, but his priorities will now also include finally integrating the summer signing entrant,Remy Cabella into the team after a slow start to his career on Tyneside .Carver had already started preparing the team for the Hull City, but can now work with more ease, knowing he is in charge till the month of May, at the very least.
John Carver, said: “This is a proud day for me. I have worked with, and learnt from, the best manager that this football club has had, in Sir Bobby Robson. “I know what this Club means to this city and its people. I believe in my players and the staff I have around me. “I am confident that we can deliver exciting successful football and look forward with relish to my role as head coach of this great football club.”
With NewCastle’s managing director, Lee Charnley backing Carver to guide Newcastle to a place in the Premier League’s top 10, we certainly look forward, to seeing how effective Carver turns out to be.
