That led to Newton taking a chance elsewhere. He was appointed as assistant to Huseyin Cimsir at Trabzonspor - with a chance at the top job coming six months into his time in Turkey. "I've been trying to become a No 1 for a while and just didn't see it happening", said Newton to Sky Sports.
... I've been working in football all my life so that's why I felt there was more opportunity over here, so I had to take the chance, basically. I think I got to the point where I thought I have to take this opportunity, I have to take this chance now or maybe it will never happen for me" "Look up and down the league. Not my opinion or anyone's opinion, just look at the facts. There are very few black managers in the league, therefore the numbers don't lie." Newton certainly took his chance, and that has now paid off with a medal and his first permanent role as a first-team manager.
