Keegan quits Newcastle

6:19 am on 3 September 2008

The England soccer great Kevin Keegan is reported to have quit as manager of Newcastle United after a second term with the premier league club which lasted only 8 months.

57-year-old Keegan was apparently unhappy with the club's policy on transfers, and three or four major signings he'd hoped for failed to materialise before the transfer window closed last Monday night.

Newcastle are 11th on the premier league table with only four points from their opening three games of the season.
