Newcastle United Insist Chris Hughton's Job As Manager Is Safe

Newcastle United have moved to announce that Chris Hughton's job as manager of the club is safe after rumours grew on Wednesday suggesting that the 51-year-old would be sacked from his position.

The Toon Army board decided to make a statement confirming their support for Hughton following the club's 4-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the League Cup fourth round at St James' Park.

The story is too old to be commented.
