Pardew: You learn to live with pressure at Newcastle

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he's learned to live with the pressure of working in the Premier League.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he's learned to live with the pressure of working in the Premier League.

Pardew, who faces a tricky trip to Cardiff on Saturday, admits he and his managerial colleagues have little choice but to accept the spotlight their profession brings.

Asked if he feels permanently under pressure, he said: "Most Premier League managers are.

"I was with (Aston Villa boss) Paul Lambert yesterday and he was saying after their three defeats, everyone was giving them a lot of trouble.

"The social media as well makes it so much more difficult with all sorts of stuff being put on there, so there is more pressure.

"But you just have to cope with it, it's as simple as that."
