The amount of autonomy KK is allowed to have in this transfer window was caused by the turnaround in match results. Without the two wins Wolves and Fulham, KK's position would be questionable. Now we have three win straight and the contention for the top 6 is within reach, The owner is prepared to give the autonomy to KK. As they were hesitant that KK was away from the managing position for a very long time. Is the test of confidence over? Probably not, it is still the same, they will wait until May.
Only if the results are good then, Kenny will be asked to stay.
