Newcastle United caretaker manager John Carver says that he is concerned by the lack of a permanent managerial appointment at the club. Carver was placed in charge of Newcastle after the sudden departure of Alan Pardew.
After being one of the longest serving managers in English football, Pardew decided to leave Newcastle for a job at Crystal Palace. Even though he left the club in a good situation in terms of the league positioning, Carver has been unable to maintain it. After having taken just one win in the last five matches, Newcastle have slipped into the bottom half of the table.
Even though they may have significant cushion from the drop zone in terms of league position, not a lot of points separates them from Hull City in the final relegation spot.
