Chris Hughton – a quiet but professional manager
With Chris Hughton being a quiet gentleman, and deflecting any praise for this fantastic season to his players, it’s nice to see what his players say about the man.
Danny Simpson talked about the gaffer today:
“The boss deserves his moment. The lads pushed him along in front of the away end at Reading.” “He is a quiet man, but he is very professional.”
“He has kept a steady head all through the season and has not let anything get to him or the lads.” “All credit to him and the staff. He has done a great job and kept us going along.”
“It was tough for him and everyone at the club at the start of the season.” “However, the boss has been strong, and that has given us the platform to achieve what we have done.”
Chris is an unlikely manager on Tyneside, but we are starting to take to the man, and once you understand he’s never going to say anything controversial during interviews (or any time for that matter), he starts to be a lot more understandable.
We are impressed with Hughton’s quiet approach and his work ethic, and he seems to be creating a team in his own image – and he wants the team to do the talking for him on the field.
That sounds good to us.
