Robbie Savage: 'Alan Pardew sounds like a broken man'

BBC Sport pundit and former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage claims that Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew "sounded like a broken man" after losing 4-0 at Southampton.

Former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage has claimed that Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew hasn't got much time left at St James' Park, sounding "like a broken man" after his side's heavy defeat away at Southampton last week.

The Magpies were thrashed 4-0 by the South Coast outfit, a result which led to heavy criticism by the Toon Army faithful.

Savage told BBC Sport: "It is hard to see Newcastle manager Alan Pardew surviving in his job for much longer - his side were torn apart by Southampton last weekend and he sounded like a broken man in his interviews after that game.

"I do not think Pardew will get much sympathy if he is fired, because of the incidents he has been involved in during his time at St James' Park - such as his altercation with Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini and his head-butt on Hull midfielder David Meyler.

"And, after almost four years in charge, Pardew cannot claim he has not had time to get things right."

Newcastle United, who play Hull City this afternoon, are currently at the foot of the Premier League.
