The Newcastle United co-owner has issued a message to fans ahead of 2024.

Newcastle United co-owner Mehrdad Ghodoussi has issued a message to supporters ahead of the New Year.

Ghodoussi reflected on a memorable 2023 for the Magpies, which saw the club reach their first Wembley final in 24 years and end their two-decade-long absence from the Champions League, where they recorded a memorable 4-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at St James' Park in October.

A tough December - a month where Newcastle have exited both Europe & the Carabao Cup, and slipped to ninth in the Premier League table - isn't the end to the year Eddie Howe & Co would have wanted but Ghodoussi has called for everyone to "embrace the lessons learned".

He also looked ahead to 2024, which begins with an away trip to Liverpool on New Year's Day.

"As we bid farewell to 2023, a year marked by its unique blend of highs and lows, challenges and triumphs, let us take a moment to reflect and embrace the lessons learned," Ghodoussi posted on X.

"Here’s to 2024 – a year brimming with potential. Let’s make it a year of positive change, personal growth, and collective success.

"May it be a year where we flourish and thrive, turning every challenge into an opportunity for a better and more successful tomorrow. Happy New Year to all!"

A number of supporters replied to the post.

One fan said: "Happy New Year to you all, Mehrdad. Thank you for what you have done for our club", while another wrote: "Wishing you, Amanda, and everyone at the club a happy new year.

"2023 has definitely been a mixed bag, but most of the lows have only been caused by our exceptional achievements from the previous season. Rome wasn't built in a day as they say!"
