Newcastle United, led by Alexander Isak, has a strong squad poised to compete in the Champions League.
The 23-year-old was crucial in Newcastle qualifying, with his efforts in the second half of last season ensuring we finished in the top four.
The Magpies have been sent to the Champions League group of death, which includes AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, and Paris Saint-Germain.
The competition begins tonight, with Newcastle hosting AC Milan at the San Siro. It’s going to be a wonderful event, and Isak will open the game.
According to reports, the Sweden international will replace Callum Wilson in Howe’s starting lineup against Milan.
Given Wilson’s performance at the weekend, Howe’s choice seems audacious, but the Newcastle boss definitely believes in Isak.
Eddie Howe was blown away by ‘real talent’ Alexander Isak.
Howe speaks to the media ahead of the game against AC Milan. He was questioned about Isak’s qualities and what he can bring to the table if he plays on Tuesday night.
“He’s just a super technician,” he remarked.
“He’s a very, very intelligent footballer with the ability to win you a game.” He has the ability to perform the unexpected.
“I think he’s a real talent.”
Isak can be a game changer for Newcastle against AC Milan
Wilson will be disappointed, but Isak may be a better fit to start against AC Milan.
As Howe puts it, he has “moments of magic.” He has the ability to achieve the inconceivable and unexpected, which might be decisive in the Champions League.
Isak has only been at Newcastle for a little more than a year, but he has already scored some key goals. He’s proven to be a game changer, and hopefully that continues against AC Milan at the San Siro.
It appears that Newcastle’s’super technician,’ who has only played in the Champions League once previously, will have a big night.
