Glenn Roeder is adding no more to the issues affecting Emre and Michael Owen.
Glenn Roeder is trying not to become personally involved in the situations affecting Newcastle United duo Emre Belozoglu and Michael Owen.
Emre is facing an FA investigation into allegations of racism towards Watford's Al Bangura, having already been charged in a separate incident relating to Newcastle's game at Everton in December.
The Magpies have issued a statement to request the Turkish midfielder is given the chance of a fair hearing and Roeder feels it would be unwise to say any more.
"It's a situation that's going to come to a head with the commission, which I think has been set for the 19th (March)," said Roeder on Sky Sports News.
"It's obviously in the hands of our legals. The club made a statement yesterday and there is nothing I can add to that statement.
"We'll just have to wait and see. For me personally the line is there is nothing else to say."
Newcastle are also haggling with Fifa regarding compensation for Owen after the England striker injured his knee at the World Cup.
Fifa has made a final offer of £1million, but The Magpies are thought to be demanding £6.2million, with Roeder again leaving the matter in the hands of the club.
He added: "The other matter the club is dealing with and I don't have anything actually to do with that.
"I'm sure the chairman is very adept at dealing with that situation and is doing his very best for the club.
"My main concern is getting Michael back out there and playing."
