Eddie Howe to Lead Newcastle in First Champions League Game at San Siro

Howe revealed that he has never been to a Champions League game before, even as a spectator, and that it will be a special moment for him to be there in person as the manager of Newcastle United. He is determined to approach the game like any other, and make sure his team is at their best for the match against the seven time European champions.

Newcastle will be up against a Milan side who lost their derby 5-1 to Inter Milan on Saturday, and one of their own players in Sandro Tonali who left the club this summer for £53m. Tonali says it will be a thrilling feeling to come out into the stadium packed with people again, and that he will have a lot of feelings going into the game as a rival of his former club.

The last time Newcastle played in the Champions League was a 2-0 home defeat by Barcelona in March 2003, and Howe is determined to make sure his team puts in a better performance this time around and makes the most of their return to Europe’s top competition.

It will be an emotional night for Howe and his team as they take on one of Europe’s biggest clubs at one of its most iconic stadiums, and they will be looking to make the most of their opportunity and put in a performance that will make everyone connected with Newcastle proud.
