“I have thick enough skin now to not take anything personally.

“A lot of people love to hate, and there’s a lot of jealousy there. A lot of people don’t like Newcastle challenging at the top.

“Whether this goes on for a long time, whether the stick does or not, who knows, but there’s been a lot of love from Newcastle fans.”

Tindall first linked up with Howe during their time at Bournemouth, first coming into contact with him in 1998.

“I’m very, very lucky to have very, very good people. We have been together for most of my managerial career.

“It’s very special to share this moment with them, because we know where we come from, the struggles we had. It was not all easy. It was very difficult.

“You just hope, little by little, you improve, you improve what you offer players, your experiences and hopefully put it to good use.”
