John Carver, who has been in charge of Newcastle United for almost five months, believes the role is the hardest job in football.
Carver replaced Alan Pardew midway through the season when the latter decided to return to Crystal Palace.
It has not been an easy time for Carver and, although Newcastle are 67.00 to be relegated this season, it has been another under-whelming campaign for the club.
I am giving it every single minute of my time, every inch.
“I think it is the hardest job in football. Definitely. It is. I don’t manufacture anything – I don’t do that. Straight and honest, that’s me,” Carver said.
“I can be disappointed like I was on Tuesday morning, but then I have to pick myself up and go again and be ready for the next game. And I can assure people out there, I am giving it every single minute of my time, every inch.”
Meanwhile, Carver has hinted that Adam Armstrong will be sent out on loan next season, adding: “What Adam needs at this football club is to be out on loan, playing in the Championship or playing in League One for a good season.
“And we almost let him do that, until Papiss (Cisse) got suspended. He was on his way to Bolton, I think it was, or Forest.”
Newcastle are 3.30 to beat Tottenham this weekend, with the visitors 2.30 and the draw 3.50.
