Newcastle cautious after beating PSG

0 57

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe remains cautious despite their impressive 4-1 victory over Champions League powerhouse Paris St Germain at St James’ Park.

This win, in their first Champions League appearance in two decades, propelled the Magpies to the summit of Group F after just two matches. Nevertheless, Coach Howe refrains from letting this performance and outcome inflate expectations, recalling the club’s historic 3-2 victory over Barcelona in the Champions League 26 years ago.

Howe, who inherited a Newcastle side seemingly heading for the Sky Bet Championship less than two years ago, said: “Going from the difficult moment we were in to now, it’s a great lesson for us not to get ahead of ourselves.

“We’ve come a long way in a short period of time, but we want to keep going and we take nothing for granted. Amazing night, but we’ve got to continue to work hard from here.

“It goes without saying we hope that gives us that belief that we need to be successful in this competition. Against Milan in our first game, there was an element of us not quite hitting the levels that we expected of ourselves.

“But I think it’s only by doing that you can truly prove to yourself that you can do it consistently, and I think today will go a long way towards proving that.

“But as I said, there are so many difficult games to come in this competition. It’s a small step forward, but there’s still a long, long way to go.

“The next game in this competition will be hugely important, but that goes to the back of our minds now as we focus back on to the Premier League and West Ham.”
