Newcastle United have spoken to Bernd Schuster about becoming the next Newcastle manager (head coach), according to reports this morning.
The latest twist sees claims that United have spoken to the former German international and are due to continue those talks today.
According to their sources, Talksport say that the out of work manager who left Malaga in May last year, has already spoken to Newcastle officials about which of the coaching staff Schuster would be prepared to keep.
It is now 25 days since Alan Pardew walked out of St.James’ Park and this week saw an interview with Lee Charnley which strongly suggested a permanent appointment wouldn’t be made until the summer.
Bernd Schuster was sacked after only one season by Malaga after taking them into the bottom half (11th) of La Liga, having finished 6th the season before he took over.
