Eddie Howe reveals why he took off Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles

Eddie Howe has revealed why he took off Jamaal Lascelles in Austria.

Eddie Howe only made one change at half-time during today’s 3-0 win over 1860 Munich at the Saalfelden Arena.

Lascelles was replaced by new signing Sven Botman – and the change wasn’t planned.

“We weren’t planning to make that change,” said head coach Howe. “Jamaal just felt that he got kicked, and didn’t come back out.

"It was a decision that we made late on that wasn’t planned.”
