Chris Hughton has come out tonight and said it is an honor for him to be manager of the Newcastle United Football Club.
Chris Hughton – an honor
An emotional Chris Hughton talked to Sky Sports 1 after the 2-1 win over the Blades tonight at the Cathedral on the Hill:
“It’s an incredible feeling, especially to do it here,” “And I think we all along said: ‘We’ll take it whenever it is, at whatever stage’.”
“But to do it here, with these supporters – there’s been a lot of help along the way, we’ve had a great group of lads that have had a real focus all season.”
“And a wonderful staff – Colin Calderwood, who’s been next to me all season – it’s emotionally a tough one.”
“We’ve got games to play still, and we want to stay on top of this division.”
“But it’s a real honour to be manager of this football club at this moment and to bring this wonderful support back to the Premiership.”
Chris seemed to be a little overcome by the magnitude of what he’s achieve and so he should be – it’s huge.
But Chris will also want to keep the 4 games winning streak going until the end of the season – no doubt about that.
