Man Utd's Simpson: Hughton handled Newcastle pressure superbly

Manchester United fullback Danny Simpson has lavished praise on Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton.

The on-loan Toon defender told the Sunday Sun: "It's obvious that Chris has done a perfect job.

"With all that was known and said about which managers could come here, it can't have been easy for him. But he has managed superbly.

"Obviously, the fact that he has given me a chance to play regularly is brilliant, but he's very impressive in bigger ways.

"He is very precise in setting his targets and in his preparation for matches. He gives each of us information on our opposing players.

"Some guys don't really know much about some of the players in this league, but Chris has ensured we are fully prepared for each match."
