Alan Pardew admits he feared getting sacked by Newcastle United

Alan Pardew admits that at times last season he felt Newcastle United may have sacked him as manager.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has admitted that he was worried about getting sacked by the club last season.

Questions over the 52-year-old's future have been raised a few times at St James' Park, and Pardew himself has claimed that defeats to Liverpool and Sunderland last season made him feel uneasy.

"I remember there have been a few games in my career where I felt my job was on the line, but I managed to get a win and keep it," the Northern Echo quotes Pardew as saying.

"Here, I think the Liverpool and Sunderland games in April were a tricky time for me, and the QPR game at the end of last season was important as well, but I don't hide from that."

The Magpies currently sit sixth in the Premier League table after four successive victories.
