NEWCASTLE – Former England international Jack Wilshere, predicts playmaker Real Madrid, Eden Hazard will be joined by Eddie Howe at Newcastle United. Wilshere made a name for himself at Arsenal, having also played under Howe while at Bournemouth.
Hazard, Wilshere said, would love to join Newcastle and play for Howe. “Hazard is on a different level. But I think Eden wants to play for a coach like Eddie Howe. He is the type of coach you want to play,” said Wilshere, quoted from Football-espana , Wednesday (10/11).
Wilshere reveals how well Howe treats her. That’s because Wilshere was in a difficult situation when he moved from Arsenal. Wilshere has struggled with Bournemouth since he was in League One and has been treated well, thanks to Howe’s request. “He was great with me all the time,” she said.
Howe, who had just replaced Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park, has a lot of work to do. But he is no stranger to tough challenges. After all, he did take Bournemouth from the English fourth division to the Premier League. Now Newcastle are in a relegation battle and are bottom of the Premier League, five points from safety.
Newcastle have just been taken over by the Public Investment Fund, which is closely linked to Saudi Arabia making them the richest football club in the world. They will seek to build a squad in January and are looking for a sporting director to lead the project. Marc Overmars has rejected the Magpies’ proposal and will remain with Ajax.
The only remaining candidate is Michael Emenalo, who spent a decade at Chelsea and was instrumental in bringing Hazard from Lille.
