Anthony Gordon absolutely lost his head when he was substituted, clashed with Eddie Howe

Anthony Gordon absolutely lost his head when he was substituted, clashed with Eddie Howe

Eddie Howe shared his thoughts on the incident with Anthony Gordon after the victory over Brentford.

Anthony Gordon reacted furiously to being substituted against Brentford as he clashed with Eddie Howe, with a video of the incident emerging online.

Gordon entered the fray at the break with Newcastle United trailing 1-0 following an Ivan Toney penalty.

The Magpies hit back in the second-half as David Raya scored an own-goal before Alexander Isak curled home a stunning strike in the 61st minute.

And as the clock was ticking down, Howe replaced second-half substitute Gordon for Matt Ritchie.

But the England under-21 star didn't appreciate being dragged off before the final whistle as he cut an angry figure as he trudged off the pitch.

Howe offered his hand, but the 22-year-old was having none of it as he rejected his manager's gesture.

The player, who joined the club in the January transfer window from Everton, then shrugged Howe off him as Joe Willock got involved.

Gordon and Howe had a brief conversation before the winger took his seat in the dugout.

His petulant reaction towards the Newcastle boss angered people on social media.

One Twitter user said: "That is actually so disgraceful, who does he think he is??"

A second wrote: "How disrespectful is that."

A third tweeted: "That's crazy considering they just bought in January and he's already acting like this towards the coach."

A fourth commented: "who does he think he is?!"

Another added: "What has he ever achieved in football for him to be reacting like that."

Despite the altercation, Howe played down the situation and insists he has no problem with Gordon.

"I’ve got no problem (with Gordon)," he revealed. "Anthony’s passionate boy. He wants to do well, but there was seconds left on the clock, and we wanted to get Matty on, because Anthony was holding his ankle.

"He just needs to control his emotions in that moment, but there are no problems."

In another interview, he added: "From my side, there was 30 seconds left, and he (Gordon) was down holding his ankle, so I put an experienced player on the pitch.

"It’s no reflection on his time on the pitch (to take him off)."

Gordon has played six league games since his move to St James' Park, but has yet to open his goal-account for his new team.
