Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan still thinks Emre is an important player for Newcastle United.
Emre – will have role at Newcastle United under Keegan
Emre returned from injury in last Mondayâ€™s Reserve team draw with Manchester United, and scored a nice individual goal in his first half run out. However he has re-injured his thigh and apparently will now be out for another couple of weeks.
But Kevin Keegan is a big fan of Emreâ€™s and talked about the injury again to the Evening Chronicle yesterday:
â€œIt was very frustrating. I thought the tackle was a bit rash.â€
â€œI would have been quite annoyed if one of my players had done that to Gary Neville, because he was also coming back from injury that night and trying to get himself fit.â€
â€œBut it happened and he is out for three weeks.â€ â€œItâ€™s a blow, but itâ€™s not the end of the world.”
â€œAnd heâ€™ll still be back for the three games and super-fit for Turkey for the European Championships.â€
Emre will probably be linked with other clubs during the summer, especially if he plays well in the European Championships. Keegan, however, says he is delighted with what the player has to offer Newcastle and thinks Emre will have a role to play at the club when he is fit again.
â€œHe is different to any other player Iâ€™ve got at the club.â€ â€œThatâ€™s what you need. You canâ€™t have all the same kind of players at a football club.â€
â€œDifferent games will require different players at times.â€ â€œAnd heâ€™s outstanding as he has the ability to unlock defenses and do something other players canâ€™t do.â€
"He is different to any other player I’ve got at the club. That’s what you need. You can’t have all the same kind of players at a football club.â€
"Different games will require different players at times." "And he’s outstanding as he has the ability to unlock defenses and do something other players can’t do."
We look forward to Emre playing in the last three games of the season and we think Kevin will be able ot get the best out of the Turk. But we’ve somehow got to make sure he’s fitter next season than he’s been this season, since he’s been out injured since early February.
