Fabian Schar – Players love having Eddie Howe ‘hard worker’ at Newcastle United now
Fabian Schar returned to Tyneside as a happy man.
The 29-year-old achieved an impressive automatic qualification for the World Cup final in Qatar with his Swiss teammates. Pass Italy to take the lead in the very last round of the group matches.
Arguably Fabian Schar is even happier that Steve Bruce is no longer at Newcastle United.
Only two Premier League starts for Newcastle United in over nine months and not a single minute on the pitch since September, totally sidelined by Steve Bruce and Graeme Jones.
Fabian Schar says the whole Newcastle United first team squad are now happy to have Eddie Howe and his coaching staff here now, having replaced Bruce and the other Steves.
Schar says training with Eddie Howe has been “amazing” and it’s crystal clear how “hardworking” the new head coach and his team are…
Earlier today, a newspaper published quotes from Steve Agnew trying to defend Steve Bruce’s embarrassing training regime, where he (Bruce) gave himself and his players a lot of time, rather than working on the training ground.
Newcastle fans love that Eddie Howe was on the training ground before 7am on day one and made the players work so hard before the Brentford game, unlike Steve Bruce who loved to pass holidays for an international fortnight.
Fabian Schar clearly believes the Newcastle United side have reacted well to the change, saying they will “do anything” for Eddie Howe.
The real test will of course take place on Saturday BUT all encouragement can be taken from Eddie Howe’s impact so far on players and fans.
Fabian Schar speaks to NUFC TV – November 18, 2021:
“I’ve only had two training sessions now [after returning from international duty] with them [Eddie Howe and his coaching staff] but all i can say and what i hear from guys is it’s been amazing.
“You can see how hard the guys work and they want to get the most out of every player.
“This is also what every player expects from a manager.
“Everyone will do everything for the manager and for the team.
“We’re all happy to have them here now.
“We are looking together for the next matches.
“Now we have to start and win games. “
