The Newcastle coach explains what happened after he was attacked by a fan
Newcastle United coach Eddie Howe spoke about the attack he was subjected to by a fan, before the end of the match that ended with a two-goal draw against Leeds United, Saturday, in the thirty-sixth week of the English Premier League.
Before the end of the confrontation, a Leeds United fan stormed the stadium, went directly to the bench for the Newcastle United team, and assaulted coach Eddie Howe, after he hit him, and addressed him a number of words, before the security men intervened.
And the British newspaper “Daily Mail” quoted coach Howe as saying after the end of the match: “It was a surprise to me, in fact, and I was focusing on the course of the match, and the last thing I expected was that this would happen to me in the English Premier League (meaning that he would be attacked by someone). fans)”.
And the newspaper confirmed that the unexpected attack on the Newcastle United coach will open the door to controversy again about the fans’ ability to infiltrate stadiums and easily reach the bench, especially since Eddie Howe was directly attacked.
It also concluded that what happened in the face of Newcastle United and its opponent, Leeds United, illustrates the fact that the fans are able to penetrate the security forces present in the stadium, and this exposes those sitting on the bench to danger, in the event that the attackers’ methods develop.
