Former Newcastle United player Shay Given believes Alan Pardew should be given more time to try and sort out Newcastle’s problems.
Newcastle are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League after a disastrous start to the season.
Pressure is mounting on owner Mike Ashley to part company with Pardew.
Newcastle fans have held protests calling for Pardew’s head, but former Newcastle legend Shay Given believes he should be given more time.
Given said, “Mike Ashley has given him a huge contract, and has shown a lot of trust in him.
“Newcastle have had a terrible start, but it’s too early to hit the panic button and sack him.
“I think he deserves more time as he’s done a decent job in his time at the club, if the results continue like they have done, then it will be inevitable he get’s the sack.Tags:
