Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has revealed that players sometimes sleep at 20s due to new manager Eddie Howe’s intense training techniques.

Howe took over after Steve Bruce before the recent international break and was to take charge of his first match against Brentford last weekend. However, the former Bournemouth boss tested positive for Covid and was left behind keeping an eye on his new side from home.

Newcastle drew 3-3 in an exciting affair at St James’ Park and now Shelvey has been talking about the first few weeks under Howe.

According to the Mirror, Shelvey said, “It’s very intense. You’re on it every second of the day.

“You are constantly thinking about football. This is how football should be played. He has galvanized everything.

“You train, but like the last national team break, I slept at 8pm every night because we were smashed from training!

“It takes getting used to, but the boys are there now. We have to work day by day and week by week to get the results.”

The midfielder goes on to admit that all the players are behind Howe and his more attacking philosophy.

“Everyone is involved in what they want to do. You could see from the Brentford performance that we were on the front foot, pushing more, more chances and better on the ball. For me personally, it was better to play in that style, so it is good.

“We are going to Arsenal with a plan for how we will win the match.

“When a new leader comes, you never know where you stand. He said everyone has a clean slate and everyone has jumped on the bandwagon.

Elsewhere, former Lokomotiv Moscow president Nikolai Naumov has slammed Ralf Rangnick, who is set to take over at Manchester United.

“It’s not about Manchester. For Rangnick, this is no escape, betrayal or disgrace. Rangnick is a merchant,” Naumov said. Match TV (via Sport Witness).

“He absolutely does not care about football, because he only runs a business around him. And the more countries, leagues and football clubs he covers, the more he will earn. He completely does not care about Lokomotiv. He did not come here to raise football, but to make money.
