Pardew admits Newcastle season wrecked by Europa League

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits the Europa League has hurt them.

The Europa League became a hindrance as soon as they were sent to Greece for the play-offs in August. Newcastle's progress to a tough knockout match has come at a cost.

Pardew said: "It has had an impact with the injuries we've sustained. This competition is not great for a Premier League team. It's too many games in addition to a tough, competitive league. It takes a toll."
