It Is A Proud Moment For Newcastle To Play In Champions League – Eddie Howe

Newcastle news


Newcastle boss Eddie Howe says it will be a “proud moment” when he attends his first Champions League game and leads the Magpies against AC Milan at the San Siro.

The Italy trip marks a return to Europe’s top competition for Newcastle after 20 years away.


“It is a game of football and I think that’s just how we have to approach it,” said Howe.


“Yes, it’s a special game and we have to be at our best.”


Howe, who spent the majority of his career as a player and manager at Bournemouth, revealed he has never been at a Champions League game before – even as a spectator.
