Newcastle news: “I’m passionate" Anthony Gordon on an incident with Eddie Howe

This Newcastle news is based on an interview with Anthony Gordon. While speaking to Craig Hope from the Daily Mail, the Newcastle superstar said that he didn't speak to Eddie Howe after he was subbed by the manager against Brentford last year when the Magpies were losing by 2-1. In that game, Gordon came on as a substitute and later on was subbed off which made the English player angry and he didn't talk to Eddie Howe. Here is what he said during that interview;

"Straight away! I won’t shy away from this, because I feel it’s been a vital part of my journey. My relationship with the manager could not be better now. If you take things like that away, maybe it wouldn’t be the same.

We had two days off after and I just remember the anxiety. Nothing could get rid of it. I couldn’t really go about my day. I was horrendous company for my family. It was that sick feeling in my stomach.

I’m passionate, but that was way overstepping the mark."
