Newcastle has appointed former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe as the successor of Steve Bruce. He has signed a contract until 2024 with the club. Howe left Bournemouth in 2020 after they were relegated from the Premier League. Newcastle also approached ex-Arsenal and current Villareal manager Unai Emery about the vacancy. Emery announced that he was flattered with the interest but would like to continue with the La Liga side.
“It is a great honour to become head coach of a club with the stature and history of Newcastle United,” new Newcastle boss Eddie Howe said. “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. I am very excited to begin our journey together.”
“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.” Newcastle United co-owner Amanda Staveley said. “He is a great fit for what we are trying to build here. 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.”
