Eddie Howe: To become the Newcastle we want to be, there is still a long way to go

February 27 News This season’s Carabao Cup final, Manchester United beat Newcastle 2-0
Card, won the championship.
Newcastle coach Eddie Howe was interviewed after the game.

Eddie Howe: “Today we played well on both ends, we gave everything. We should have defended that free-kick well and then the second goal scored by the opponent was fatal.

We did everything we could to bring back the suspense of the game, we had chances to score but we didn’t take advantage of it, that’s why we lost.
For our game, I have no complaints, obviously the score does not explain this, this is the cruelty of football.
Individually and collectively, I think we played well, we just didn’t take our chances in the box and we need to work on that.

I can’t take positive things from this defeat, but I can take positive things from the performance of the team, who gave everything for the club.
Sorry we couldn’t make the Newcastle fans happy today.

We are at a very high level of competition right now and we have to close the gap, games are decided by small gaps so we need to improve and hopefully we can enjoy more moments like this.

This is a process. We hope to come to Wembley more in the future. There is still a long way to go to become the team we want to be.
