Chris Hughton has talked today about not being short of leaders and captains in the dressing room this season.
Chris Hughton – no shortage of captains in our dressing room
This is what Chris Hughton told the Newcastle Journal today:
“We’ve had plenty of captains out there this season,” “It’s been a key and I could probably add another couple of names to the ones that people have mentioned like Smith, Butt and Harper.”
“Colo (Frabricio Coloccini) is a quieter individual but he’s had an excellent season.” “There are some real good characters in the dressing room who’ve been strong on and off the pitch and that’s been a big thing for us. Fabricio is a good example of how well we’ve done.”
“Some will say we’ve dropped down a division but I do see a development in his game as each season goes past.” “Irrespective of the division it’s still the English game and a tough division and I see a player who has developed.”
We have to hope that our players have improved this season, because that improvement will be needed next season, if we are to avoid another relegation fight in the top division in England.
Four or five new players in the summer will also help to strengthen the Newcastle squad for next season’s significant challenges.
