Newcastle boss Pardew vows never to leave dugout again

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has vowed not to leave the dugout again after their 4-1 win over Hull City.

Pardew was sent off after an ugly clash with Hull midfielder David Meyler.

Pardew's antics will generate yet more negative headlines for a club never far from controversy for one reason or another, and the manager admits Saturday's episode may well be a personal watershed.

"Definitely from now on I'm going to sit down and stay out of the way. I'll have to sit in the dug-out - hopefully I'll be in the dug-out, we'll have to wait and see," he said, alluding to the likelihood of an FA ban.

"I want to win games. Perhaps I get too involved in it by standing so close to the action. The thing today has told me to go and sit down, watch the game and keep out of the way.

"Sir Alex Ferguson once said to me, 'go and sit down'. I think he was probably right."
