  • Meanwhile, Botman in the Match of the Day magazine:
"Trippier DM’d (direct messaged) me to say welcome to the club. It's always nice because after I was put in a group chat, everybody else (said) welcome.

"It was on a Zoom meeting. We talked to each other about Newcastle, trying to get me there. He has a really clear vision of what he wants. For example, in one of my first training sessions, somebody shot from 30 metres at goal and he said ‘no, no, we're not gonna do this anymore. Play, play, play… that's the vision.”
