Listen to Joe Kinnear on TalkSport after Newcastle’s new Director of Football took part in a telephone interview on the radio station last night (Monday).

Sometimes ranting, Kinnear rebutted the negative reaction to his appointment from the “snidey press” and sections of the Newcastle support.

Responding to accusations of a lack of transfer dealing experience, Kinnear talks about his time at Wimbledon when there were:
