Newcastle United sustained their 8th consecutive Premier League defeat on May 2nd after losing against Leicester City as the scoreboard displayed 3-0 at the end of the game.
This string of losses have brought forward a huge boulder of pressure to Newcastle United but more to John Carver than anyone else as the manager is at the brink of being sacked.
The manager of Newcastle United, John Carver held talks with the managing director Lee Charnley and the future of Carver was the central point of the discussion. With so many losses being suffered in these final stages of the season, Carver was being rumored on being sacked and replaced by the coach of Derby County Steve McClaren but he isn’t interested in becoming the new coach of the Premier League club as he refused the managerial offer that was launched at him.
In the official website of Newcastle United there was a statement which announced all of the details that emerged from the meeting involving John Carver and Lee Charnley and it was in this statement where it was confirmed that John Carver would still be in charge of Newcastle United at least until the end of the season.
Newcastle United has to play 3 more league matches before their seasons finalizes and Carver will be manager during all of these games but his long term future still remains uncertain.
“The outcome of those discussions is that the board, John Carver, his staff and players are absolutely focused on our current situation and the three hugely important fixtures that remain this season, two of which are at St James’ Park. All parties accept responsibility for the current situation but are determined, together, to ensure this club; your club retains its Premier League status. That is the only focus at this time.”
It’s very likely that John Carver will be offered a long term contract to continue being in charge of Newcastle United for a few more seasons but this will happen only if he is able to secure positive points in their upcoming Premier League matches which includes matches against: West Bromwich Albion, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United.
The important thing for the club is to avoid being relegated, that is everything what they want, if John Carver can do that, then his future at Newcastle United is a big and real possibility.
