Newcastle boss Hughton not enjoying increased profile

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton admits he's struggled to handle the pressure of more media work this season.

However, Hughton says he'll always be available to get the club's message to fans.

"I don't mind being more high profile. I'm OK with that," he told the Sunday Sun. "Would I prefer to do less of the media work? Well, yes - I think every manager will tell you they would like to spend all of their time on the training pitch.

"But it is part and parcel of the job when you manage a big club.

"You have to understand the responsibilities of things like talking to fans because they are important.

"It's never something that I would stop doing, even though it probably doesn't come that easily to me."
