Dan Burn raves about Eddie Howe's training methods at Newcastle United

Newcastle United star Dan Burn has raved about Eddie Howe‘s training methods and has claimed that they are very different to what he was used to under Graham Potter.

The Magpies signed the 30-year-old from Brighton and Hove Albion for £13 million in January this year (Sky Sports). The acquisition certainly raised a few eyebrows, but Howe wanted him and Burn definitely played a big part in helping them avoid the drop last season.

Dan Burn raves about Eddie Howe’s training methods at Newcastle

Howe has well and truly transformed this Newcastle United side.

The Magpies are now a completely different team compared to what they were this time last year under Steve Bruce. Newcastle fans are absolutely delighted with how things are going, and one of the biggest reasons behind their change in fortunes could well be Howe’s training methods.

Burn came on the Monday Night Club on BBC 5 Live yesterday, and he was asked about how the practice sessions are under Howe.

The defender said: “I knew it was going to be intense. There are a lot of similarities between Graham Potter and Howe with the way they go about preparing for games. There are differences as well.

“With Eddie now, the way that we play demands a certain level of intensity, and it comes every single day. The sessions are a lot longer than what I was used to and I took a little while to get used to.

“What I find crazy about the gaffer’s training at the minute is that we never really seem to do the same session twice. He’s got so many sessions saved, and every single day it’s something completely new.”

TBR View:

Howe deserves enormous credit for the way he has changed Newcastle.

When the 44-year-old was given the job in November last year, the Magpies hadn’t won a single game. They looked destined to go down, but Howe did something truly extraordinary.

Newcastle didn’t just survive in the Premier League, they managed to finish 11th, just five points behind seventh-placed West Ham and only seven behind Manchester United, who finished sixth and qualified for the Europa League.

Howe’s training methods and philosophy are clearly doing the trick, and it will be interesting to see how far he can take this Newcastle side this season.
