Official proof that stewards are harder than players this week. Last weekend Newcastle United faced Fenerbahce (in Austria, naturally) with one steward coming a cropper thanks to a brutal assault by Toon full-back Davide Santon. If Santon had done that to another player, he’d still be rolling around now, but our man in the high-viz jacket is up faster than you can say “compensation claim”.
