Eddie Howe defended himself against criticism for avoiding discussion of the executions that took place in Saudi Arabia.
A little about the topic
The Newcastle manager says he doesn’t feel qualified to answer questions about the actions of his club’s Saudi owners. Eddie has faced criticism in recent days for his refusal to discuss recent executions in Saudi Arabia. But Eddie Howe claims to do what’s best for his team when he takes sides with such theses.
What did Eddie Howe say?
Eddie Howe said it’s not embarrassing to ask, he understands what to ask. But it is his right to say what he feels is right for himself and for Newcastle. For the moment it’s to give them as much as Howe can without going into an area he’s not better off going into. If Howe does this, the team could suffer.
According to Eddie he was a footballer with little difference. Eddie boarded the 19 year old team bus with a copy of The Times at hand. Eddie has strange looks from his teammates. But he was from a family where everything was towards him. he was interested in world politics at that stage.
Eddie Howe went on to say that in today’s world, his job is to know what’s going on around the world and he reads about it. It’s difficult for everyone concerned. Howe understands that questions need to be asked, he has no problem with that. From his point of view – and he always kept it – his specialized subject is football. This is what Eddie knows, this is what he has been taught to do.
The manager added that once he deviates from that into an area where he doesn’t feel qualified to have a huge opinion, he thinks he’s walking dangerous ground, so he prefers to stick with what he thinks he knows. According to Howe he is very proud to represent this football club and the supporters and the city and he is driven to create a team that the city can be proud of and all his energy goes into it and will continue.
