Steven Taylor has said that John Carver is the ‘Perfect Choice’ after his appointment as Newcastle head coach, at least until the end of the season.

The Newcastle centre-back won’t be around to help John Carver out on the pitch as he recovers from the season ending injury he picked up against Burnley.

Steven Taylor was speaking on the Sports Lobster website, be inspired…;

“The perfect choice. I think that is good news for the club and I’m really pleased that the club has made this decision.

“It means everyone will be settled and knows what is happening moving forward.”

The man to take Newcastle forward;

“John is the man to take us forward now, at least until the summer, and it means we aren’t faced with the distraction of having the names of possible new managers discussed in the media.

“The fact that John is now in this position of being in charge until the summer gives us an element of consistency moving forward.”

High standards;

“He sets high standards, and having worked with the previous manager it provides a smooth transition from the previous regime.”

“I believe John learnt a lot from Sir Bobby Robson in terms of his man management style, and that’s a good thing. He’s great with us players.”

Plenty to cheer about;

“He knows the right time to scream and shout and the right time to put an arm around someone. He has the ability to get the best out of people and obviously he’s great on the training ground and tactically too. He’s waited his time and he fully deserves this opportunity.

“Let’s all get behind the new gaffer now, and get right behind the team too, and I’m sure there will be plenty to cheer about in the coming months
