Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he’s a fan of Newcastle United.
The French tactician has urged the Toon to stand by Steve McClaren.
“It is a long term job. It is impossible to transform a club of that stature in six months. Give him time,” said Wenger.
“Newcastle is a very exciting project. It’s a huge club, great potential and give Steve McClaren time.
“Patience is not a quality we have much of in society, but in football you need it.”
