Scouting network needs rebuildingMar 25 2007





By The Sunday Sun



Glenn Roeder last night vowed to rebuild a Newcastle scouting network he claims is all but non-existent . . .


In order to identify transfer targets worthy of his quest for success at St James's Park.


While Roeder describes his summer player search as his biggest challenge as United boss, his first - and biggest - signing of the summer may perform off the pitch.


"We haven't got the recruitment personnel - ie the scouting network - we need, and we're working on that," Roeder revealed.


"We've got one full-time scout. Frank Arnesen, at Academy level at Chelsea, has got more than 20 full-time scouts all around the world looking for young talent under 21.





Story continues




"The chairman is trying to help me and we've highlighted someone we want to employ.



"We are trying to persuade him to leave his current club to come to Newcastle, and he would help me greatly.



"We would be employing his address book. He has got contacts, and we haven't."

UNless this mystery man is on dodgy ground in his present position,  why would he commit to us seeing as how it's at least fifty fifty that roeder will be on his bike at some point next season or even sooner.
