Graeme Jones wants an important Newcastle role in Eddie Howe’s “elite regime”.


Graeme Jones believes that Eddie Howe is more than capable of taking on the Newcastle United job and hopes to play a major role in his management team.

Jones will take care of the third match in his temporary spell on Saturday when Newcastle travel to Brighton, but it will probably be his last match as head coach; 90min understands that it has in principle been agreed that Howe will succeed the fired Steve Bruce at St James’ Park permanently.

The interim manager Jones insists he has not been told who the new manager will be, and he simply told his weekly press conference that Newcastle must appoint the right man if they are to achieve their goals.

“Appointing the right manager for this club is important,” said Jones. “This Newcastle juggernaut you need to know how to do, how the supporters think and this process could not have been avoided and eventually this will be worth it.”

Jones has not worked directly for Howe, but he has worked with his longtime former assistant Jason Tindall for a three-month period at Bournemouth, before accepting his role at Newcastle.

Howe wants to bring Tindall, Simon Weatherstone, Stephen Purches and Dan Hodges to Newcastle, and Jones confirmed that he is ready to work with them again – if he really is the man to take over.

“If it’s Eddie, I think he’s ideal without working with him. He’s living for the game, you can’t come to Newcastle and be part – time, he’s intense and has exceptional Premier League experience and I’m sure he is more than capable.

“I know their way of working, I know how they are. Eddie comes with a great experience but it is not written in stone and nothing has been said or confirmed by the football club.

“Their way of working has been built up, when I went to work with Jason I got an insight into what their way of working was, it’s elite – and if that’s true I would have to change. It was impressive and felt like I learned, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Jones added that he was convinced that Newcastle’s new owners had done an appropriate amount of due diligence when identifying Bruce’s successors, while also praising the style of football that Howe usually implements.

“It helps if you have history with people, but I was just interested in the right person, I’m only interested in the best of the club – whoever it is, I know the owners have done their due diligence, the more information you get the closer you are to get the right answer.

– The style is high tempo, attacking football with speed, very pragmatic so that they would pay attention off the ball and you are only as good as you defend. The sessions were good, innovative.

“I was with Tindall, Purches and Weatherstone and I imagine it came together under Eddie, so I have a good idea of ​​what they do and it was elite work.”

Finally, Jones made it clear that although he already has his role in the club secure, he wants to play a big role in Newcastle’s future.

“I’m not here to put out cones, I want to get my hands dirty and get involved, so we’ll have to wait and see, so we can not talk about specific role yet.”
