The late English football legend Don Howe is not Eddie Howe’s father. They have no connection between them.
Don Howe was the father of three children, none of whom are Eddie Howe.
Former Arsenal manager Don Howe was married to a woman named Pauline G. Cooper, while Eddie’s late mother was Anne Howe, who sadly passed away in 2012. If Don Howe was Eddie’s father , he would only have two siblings, not four. Eddie is one of his mother Anne’s five children, all of whom she raised.
Even with plenty of evidence that negates the assumption that Don is Eddie’s father, people still tend to believe he is. This is due to the fact that they both have the same last name and, more importantly, Eddie never mentioned his biological father as his mother raised him and his four siblings all by herself. .
A Twitter user @UnitedNews_NUFC also debated this riddle asking if Don was Eddie’s father, but many responses to the comment were negative. One user replied: “There has been conflicting information but no. Also Eddie would have said if that was the case.”
Now that it has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Don is not Eddie’s biological father, it doesn’t change the fact that Donald is one of the best managers England have ever had.
Don Howe, who died at the age of 80 on Tuesday, had a more incredible reputation in the sport of football, serving as the No. 2 to several different managers than most people have achieved by actually managing a team.
After having a successful playing career in the 1950s and 1960s for West Bromwich Albion, Arsenal and England, he was eventually appointed to various senior managerial positions as required. However, Howe’s true impact was felt most when he served in the influential role of assistant manager.
