John Carver reveals the most valuable lesson he learned from Alan Pardew

Newcastle United manager John Carver has explained the valuable less he learned under Alan Pardew.

Newcastle United manager John Carver has told the Chronicle about the valuable lesson he feels he learned from former Magpies boss Alan Pardew.

Carver has suggested he learned several things when he was working for Pardew, which have made him more prepared for the magnitude of leading the Premier League giants.

“How he dealt with it is invaluable because it doesn’t happen that often,” said Carver.

“So it will put me in good stead. He taught me it’s important not to be around the training ground all the time.”

Carver’s comments are aimed at the ‘Pardew Out’ campaign, which developed before Pardew went to manage Crystal Palace below Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Hopefully for Carver’s sake he won’t be in a position where he has to deal with criticism on a daily basis related to his position at the club.

He has to handle himself and the team in the right manner if he has aspirations to lead the side beyond this season, as he only has a contract until the end of the campaign.

For him to get an extended deal would suggest that Newcastle have to be successful under him, which means it’s unlikely fans will be calling for his head if the club makes that decision.

If they are, he’s only in charge until the end of the season anyway but Carver seems to be well prepared and ready to deal with that negativity if it develops.
