Mick Harford: Former Newcastle player

Newcastle's director of football Joe Kinnear wanted the former England striker as his assistant.

But Harford, who spent a short time at St James' Park as a player in the early 1980s and worked with Kinnear at Wimbledon, has declined the offer and instead agreed to become assistant manager at Millwall, whose coaching staff he joined last month.

The 54-year-old told Sky Sports News: "After meeting with Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear, I made the hard decision that it is not the right time for me to take up this role.

"It was an honour to be asked to work at a fantastic club and I have the utmost respect for the Newcastle United and its fans.

"I've been in talks with Millwall over a period of time and just felt it better suited me at the moment. I didn't feel that at Newcastle."

Millwall manager Steve Lomas told the club's official website: "I know there was speculation about Mick going to Newcastle because of his past connections with Joe Kinnear, but he's fully committed to Millwall and to doing a job for us here."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
