Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for February.
Howe has beaten off competition from Mikel Arteta, Ralph Hasenhuttl, and Jurgen Klopp to win the award. The 44-year-old has moved the Magpies out of the bottom three for the first time since September and up to 14th.
“A lot questions were asked of our resilience and resolve, and ability to bounce back from what seemed, at some stages, I wouldn’t say impossible, but a very difficult moment and that’s where the players have really stepped up,” Howe said.
“They deserve a lot of credit for how they’ve attacked this spell of games and confidence has returned with every win.”
“The supporters, since I’ve come to the football club, have been absolutely brilliant, home and away. But, the home atmosphere is just so unique. So, you can hear that roar, that feeling.
“It can only hope inspire the players and in those home games that we’ve had, no doubt, it’s made a difference.”
