Howe new Newcastle coach (Sports News) – After a thorough search, Newcastle United FC have finally appointed Eddie Howe as the first team’s new manager. The 43-year-old replaces Steve Bruce, who was sacked last week for failing to win a game during the season with the club.
Howe New Newcastle Coach - Details
Newcastle announced that Howe has inked a two-and-a-half year deal until summer 2024. The former head coach of AFC Bournemouth becomes the first manager to be appointed by the English club following the Saudi-backed takeover. Unai Emery of Villarreal was one of the names initially considered, but he reiterated his loyalty to the Spanish club.

Upon his appointment, Howe issued this statement: “It is a great honour to become head coach of a club with the stature and history of Newcastle United, it is a very proud day for me and my family. This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is also a lot of work ahead of us and I am eager to get onto the training ground to start working with the players.”
“I would like to thank the club’s owners for this opportunity and thank the club’s supporters for the incredible welcome they have already given me,” Howe adds. “I am very excited to begin our journey together.”
Howe New Newcastle Coach - Tough Job Ahead
Howe’s appointment comes right before the international break, which gives the new Magpies boss time to fix the most immediate problems of the club. Newcastle, despite becoming the richest team in the English Premier League after their takeover, are currently in the relegation zone, seated at 19th in the table.
Howe will also only have the opportunity to build a better player lineup during the January transfer window. For now, he will have to content himself with working with some familiar faces, as Newcastle’s Callum Wilson, Matt Ritchie and Ryan Fraser had been under his management at Bournemouth.

This will be Howe’s first managerial job since August 2020. At that time, he left Bournemouth when the club was relegated English Premier League.
Howe has practically spent most of his life with Bournemouth; he was a player for the team for 11 seasons and eventually became their manager. He served as boss of the Cherries twice, and helped them rise from the fourth tier of English football up to the EPL, where they remained for five seasons. He is only one of a few managers to lead his team from all three divisions up to the top flight.

As well as his obvious achievements with AFC Bournemouth, where he had a transformational impact, he is a passionate and dynamic coach who has clear ideas about taking this team and club forward.
“He is a great fit for what we are trying to build here,” Stavely continued. “We are delighted to welcome Eddie and his staff to St. James’ Park and very much look forward to working together towards our collective ambitions.”
Howe’s first game as manager will take place on 20 November. Newcastle will be facing off against Brentford FC at St. James’ Park.
