Warren Barton, a former Magpies player, believes that Anthony Gordon, a young player for Newcastle United, has the potential to develop into a significant asset for the team if he concentrates on his game and gets beyond his early difficulties. Gordon, a young international for England, recently spoke with a reporter about his rocky start at St James’ Park. The 22-year-old attacker joined the team in January to replace Chris Wood after being courted by Newcastle in the summer. Under Frank Lampard, Gordon had lost favour at Everton and was criticised for supposedly orchestrating his exit from the team.


Gordon had little possibility of starting in the Premier League towards the end of the season, despite being unable to take part in Newcastle’s Carabao Cup run owing to being cup-tied. In the final-day tie with Chelsea, he did succeed in scoring his first goal for the team. Gordon recognised the significance of the impending summer and thought back on his difficulties adjusting to his new surroundings at Newcastle after the game. He began as a striker in England’s first group-stage triumph over the Czech Republic while playing for the under-21 squad at the European Championships.


In recent months, players including Alexander Isak, Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, and Joe Willock have been battling for the left flank position at Newcastle. Barton thinks that manager Eddie Howe’s effective management has helped Gordon avoid criticism and charges of being a financial waste thus far. The former player praised Gordon’s candour in the interview, acknowledging the challenges he faced in dealing with criticism over his move and leaving a struggling club.


Gordon needs to increase his level of fitness and show character, according to Barton, to make the first squad. The young player’s tenacity and work ethic were viewed as assets that might help him succeed at Newcastle United. Overall, Barton’s compliments and encouragement show Gordon’s ability to have a big effect if he stays focused and keeps honing his abilities.
