Danny Guthrie has talked to Newcastle United TV, and he hopes the club can make a return to European football very soonÂ -Â same here.
Danny Guthrie – could be pleasant surprise at Newcastle
The 21-year-old has already played in the Champions League with Liverpool, and even last season played with Bolton Wanderers, and they reached the last 16 of the UEFA Cup. So Danny already has quite a bit of experience playing in Europe.
Guthrie spoke to nufcTV, and was asked about his ambitions for the coming season:
“For the team, if we get a good start I don’t think Europe is out of the way for us with the players we have,” “For me, just to get as many games as I can.”
“The manager has had a good pre-season to get who he wants in, and the players are really working hard in training. A European place is realistic.”
“It’s notorious, everyone knows we have under-achieved for a few years, so to break into Europe or have a cup run would be amazing.”
Guthrie will probably make his debut in tomorrow’s friendly at Hartlepool United, so the fans will get a chance to see how he looks.
And the youngster has already said he wants to force himself into the starting eleven, at Old Trafford on Sunday, 17th August, as an initial target.
“The gaffer just said to me, ‘Just knuckle down, and you will have as great a chance as anybody in here’,”
“It is just about me knuckling down and showing everyone what I can do to get into the starting line-up on the first day.”
We’re hoping that Guthrie will be a pleasant surprise for us this coming season, and certainly Bolton supporters on this site, have said he was very good for them last season at the Raebok.
We look for great things from Danny in the future on Tyneside.
