Where Newcastle United will face Fiorentina and Villarreal this weekend. He sees these matches as a valuable rehearsal for the team before the start of the Premier League campaign for 2023/24.

The Magpies will finally return to St. James’ Park after a long time, and Howe is excited about playing on their home ground again. He expects tough challenges from both Fiorentina, who reached the final of the Europa Conference League and performed well in Serie A, and Villarreal.
