LONDON: Newcastle United have been ordered to pay all of Kevin Keegan’s costs after their former manager’s victory in a constructive dismissal case – a total which could reach £1.5mil (US$2.5mil).
Former England boss Keegan left the north-east club in September 2008 after they signed Uruguayan midfielder Ignacio Gonzalez against his wishes.
This month an arbitration tribunal found in Keegan’s favour and on Wednesday ordered the club to pay costs and interest on the £2mil compensation award dating back to September last year.
It was another success for Keegan over Newcastle owner Mike Ashley, who claimed the former Liverpool, Newcastle and England striker had breached his contract. — AFP
