Kevin Keegan’s Managerial Career

Today Kevin Keegan was named as the new Newcastle manager. Here’s a look at his managerial record:

  • 1992-97 Newcastle. Won 54% of 251 games. Led Newcastle back to the Premier League as First Division Champions in 1993. Newcastle finished up as runners-up in the Premier League behind Manchester United despite a 12 point lead.
  • 1998-99 Fulham. Won 62% of 61 games. Led Fulham to the First Division as triumphant champions.
  • 1999-2000 England. Won 38% of 18 games. Keegan led England to Euro 2000. England defeated Germany 3-2 but lost to Romania and Portugal to finish third in their group and fail to reach the knock-out stages. A 1-0 home defeat by Germany a World Cup qualifier at Wembley resulted in Keegan resigning.
  • 2001-05 Manchester City. Won 43% of 176 games. Again he led a club to a dramatic promotion to the Premier League with high scoring attacking football. Keegan resigned from City in March 2005.

Here’s a YouTube highlight from Newcastle’s 5-0 defeat of Manchester United in Keegan’s previous period as manager:
