"We don't want anyone else managing us!" - Newcastle defender praises Pardew

Alan Pardew

Newcastle United right back Daryl Janmaat says that he doesn't want anybody other than Alan Pardew managing the Magpies.

After a torrid start to the season, Newcastle United finally seem to be showing signs of recovery.

The 2-2 draw at Swansea City earlier this month seems to have given the Magpies bags of confidence, with wins over Leicester City and Tottenham following.

Sunday's 2-1 win at Spurs demonstrated how Newcastle still have fight left in them despite calls for manager Alan Pardew to be sacked, with goals from Sammy Ameobi and Ayoze Perez leading them from 1-0 down to win the game.

The pressure has been eased on manager Pardew, who was the subject of mass protests from Newcastle fans earlier this month who were unhappy with the club's winless start to the season.

Now though, the Magpies welcome Liverpool to St. James' Park on Saturday in a bid to make it three wins from three games, and right back Daryl Janmaat says that the players are behind Pardew, and don't want anybody else managing them.

"The manager was under a lot of pressure so it's nice that we have given him these points," the Dutchman said."The pressure has eased. We want him as the manager - of course. We want him."

"We do not want another manager. If you lose games then it is normal (for the manager to be questioned), but now I expect the pressure to ease on him.

"We needed points and we need to be higher in the table. Two wins in a row after a draw has been very good for us," added the summer arrival from Feyenoord.

Tonight, Newcastle travel to face Manchester City in the Capital One Cup, hoping to keep their recent run of form going.
