Pellegrino leaps to Pardew's defence after ill-fated Barcelona trip

He told his press conference ahead of Saturday's game against Huddersfield: "I don't know where that information has come from but Jonny Evans will be captain on Saturday, yes, provided he comes through training tomorrow.

"The disciplinary side is dealt with. There's a board here that comes together and decides that and we move on now.

"I was angry about the situation. It's tempered with us being in a results business and the incident magnified that situation. The only way we can rectify it and get out of this situation is to win games. We have a massive game against Huddersfield."
