Former Lyon manager and candidate for the Newcastle job Remi Garde dropped a hint whilst commentating for Canal + yesterday on Arsenal’s Premier League match against Manchester City.
When quizzed on the subject of the Newcastle job, he replied:
“No comment regarding Newcastle. I cannot say anything today.”
GFFN exclusively first revealed contact between Newcastle and Remi Garde and confirmed earlier reports that he has held talks with NUFC representatives about ten days ago in London. It is believed that Newcastle have since interviewed other candidates for the job but that Garde is firmly in the running and a decision will likely be made in the next 48 hours.
