first_imgFormer Newcastle United player Lee Bowyer claims Derby County manager Steve McClaren would be perfect for the job at St. James’ Park.Current Toon boss John Carver has seen his side lose six consecutive games and win just twice in 2015, meaning chairman Mike Ashley is likely to look for a new manager at the end of the season.If the Newcastle lose to Swansea this weekend, they will set a new club record with seven Premier League losses on the bounce.And Bowyer, who made 79 Premier League appearances for the Magpies believes former England manager McClaren, who guided Middlesbrough to the 2004 League Cup coupled with his success at Derby County, makes him perfect for the Tyneside job.“I think he’d be perfect, because he’s managed England and there is a lot of pressure in that job, and there is a lot of pressure to manage Newcastle so I think he’d be perfect for it,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast.“Derby don’t look like they are going to go up, unless they go up through the play-offs.”Talking about his other former employers, West Ham United, Bowyer believes manager Sam Allardyce is still the man for the job at Upton Park, claiming he has done an exceptional job at the helm.“He’s done what they’ve asked and got the team back into the Premier League and now they have been established,” Bowyer said.“They’re always finishing mid-table, which I think is good for West Ham and sometimes I think you have to be careful with what you wish for.”last_img
