Geremi has played for some top teams, including Real Madrid and Chelsea, before Sam Allardyce signed him on a free transfer for Newcastle United last summer.
Geremi – will do his old club no favors
Geremi talked to the Sun today, about the game on Monday against his old club Chelsea:
â€œConsidering how Chelsea fought back from fourth to be in contention, it goes to show they have the strength to go all the way.â€
â€œNo one gave them a chance five months ago but now itâ€™s really exciting. Itâ€™ll be a deserved win if they manage to keep up their momentum and win the league.â€
â€œUnited have also been in good form and thatâ€™s why they are the defending Premier League champions.â€ â€œBut if Chelsea win, Iâ€™ll be happy for my friends there, and of course there are many of them in London.â€
â€œPersonally, I donâ€™t have to prove anything to Chelsea or anyone but rather to fight hard as a Newcastle player. Iâ€™m sorry for Chelsea but thatâ€™s football.â€
â€œItâ€™s a very unfortunate situation for them because itâ€™s our last game at home, against one of the big teams. We need the result and cannot come out second best.”
â€œWeâ€™re not going to let them come here and win, thatâ€™s for sure.â€
It’s true that Chelsea have done really well this season, and their Israeli manager, Avram Grant, has hardly received the accolades he deserves for what he’s achieved. But make no mistake, Chelsea will bring their top team to St. James’ Park on late Monday afternoon, and it promises to be a titanic game for the watching fans.
The game will be beamed on TV around the world to millions and millions of football fans.
It’s hard to predict the scoreline – but we’d be very surprised and disappointed if Newcastle don’t give the Chelsea side a very tough game indeed.
