Geremi has been talking to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today and he feels sorry for the Newcastle fans.
Geremi – disappointed for Newcastle United fans
Geremi told the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œI wanted to show the Newcastle fans I wanted to do well.â€ â€œAs a footballer you want to play and be professional and do your job.â€
â€œAnd you have to give a lot of credit to the Newcastle fans because they keep on coming to see you.â€ â€œThe bad thing is when they turn up and you donâ€™t perform well.â€
â€œThatâ€™s a big disappointment, so you want to play very well to make them happy.â€ â€œThey come to watch you and pay a lot of money so you have to work hard for them.
â€œThe best thing is when you play well and people enjoy it.â€™â€™
But since Kevin Keegan has arrived Geremi has started to play very well in right mid-field and has received some glowing reports from his new manager Kevin Keegan.
However, Geremi realizes he still has to work hard and show the right attitude to grab Keeganâ€™s attention in training that he showed once he returned from the African Cup of Nations in January.
â€œItâ€™s important to show a new manager what you can do. You need to impress him and you need to gain his confidence.â€â€œAnd you have to win your place in the starting XI.”
“When I returned from Ghana he didnâ€™t play me straight away. He needed to see what my quality was like, but I think he knows me better now.â€™â€™
Geremi has had a tough season but he’s shown a great and very professional attitude, and now is a fixture in Newcastle’s first team. That’s the kind of player we want at Newcastle, and Geremi no doubt is now looking forward to an excellent Newcastle career.
We think he’s going to continue to do very well under Kevin Keegan on Tyneside.
