Alan Shearer, a Newcastle United icon, remarked that manager Eddie Howe “still has plenty of credit in the bank” following the FA Cup loss to Manchester City.

The pressure has mounted on Howe following recent bad results and their elimination from the FA Cup.

The Magpies are suffering this season, and qualifying for Europe next season is improbable.

Newcastle’s performance this season pales in comparison to their great campaign last season, when they qualified for the Champions League and finished in the top four. As a result, questions have been raised about Howe’s future with the squad.

Alan Shearer has backed Howe to remain at Newcastle

Shearer, on the other hand, has rejected predictions that Howe may resign if things do not improve in the last ten games of the season, believing he still has the support of those in positions above him.

Shearer told the BBC: “Eddie Howe still has plenty of credit in the bank.” Eddie Howe will be Newcastle’s manager next season, regardless of whether they finish in the middle of the table or qualify for Europe.

“Manchester City have a 38-game unbeaten streak at the Etihad.” When you come here as the opposition squad, you must consider this. Isak had chances in both halves, but nothing happened. Dan Burn passed up a chance to shoot.To have a shot of success, you must take those half chances.

“This season has been challenging for Newcastle. However, there have been some mitigating situations. The injuries, particularly to Nick Pope and Joelinton. “They really miss both of those players.”

This season, Newcastle has suffered long-term injuries to several key players, most notably goalie Nick Pope.

As a result, they have been ousted from European competition and have exited both cups in the quarterfinals, despite obtaining difficult draws in both tournaments and an unfavorable Champions League group.

Shearer believes Howe needs to be backed in the summer and given some new players if they want to avoid the same thing happening again next season, especially because some of this year’s crop hasn’t been able to recapture their form like they did last year.
