A lot of Newcastle United fans are convinced that Jaap Stam is telling the truth about the job offer from Newcastle in the summer.
Newcastle responded and said that the claims were a fabrication, and some Toon fans have made a very interesting point – what would Stam get out of this by lying?
He has a job with Feyenoord, and if this was a lie, it could harm his reputation in England.
However, it appears they actually were stupid enough to try and make Stam the new manager.
Either way, these Newcastle fans didn’t think Stam lied about the offer.
See the best of the reaction below.
Senior club sources have refuted Jaap Stam's claim of being offered the managerial role at #NUFC. It is understood that the club did not speak to Stam over the managerial role – nor did they have any interest in him.https://t.co/FzUA3OdUA3

Who to believe – the club that consistently lies or Stam?

I know the sources within @NUFC to tell lies, constantly.
I do not know Jaap Stam to tell lies.
Plus, why would he lie about something so insignificant.
Plus (again) I’d imagine Jaap Stam would appear much higher up anyone’s managerial wish list than Steve Bruce.

‘The club admitted at the tribunal that it intentionally misled the press, public and fans of Newcastle’

So why would he lie?

Many Newcastle fans believe Stam over their own club.
Would it matter if they did? Why come out and deny it? Nobody cares if they approached someone months ago, they should be approaching people now!

Other Toon supporters are not interested in the story.
