Newcastle United’s player of the season, Habib Beye, is ready to get match fit when Newcastle take on Valencia at St.James’ Park tomorrow afternoon – KO 3:00 pm.
Habib Beye – continuing to get physically fit and match fit
The Senegal international had a great first season at the club, and is already a firm fans’ favorite at Newcastle.
Habib played his first game of the season in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, and lasted 60 minutes.
Beye has been held up in his training since the squad returned, due to a slight heel injury, that’s kept him on the sidelines for the past two weeks.
The former Marseilles captain, and one of the new leaders at Newcastle, is hoping to get another good run-out against the Spanish cup winners.
“It was great to be back out there in front of the fans at St James’ Park,”
“It was my first game for 10 weeks.” “I got through 60 minutes, which was great, and I have nothing to worry about. “
“Now I am looking forward to Saturday against Valencia.”
“Everybody is looking forward to being ready against Manchester United.”
“The team spirit in the camp is fantastic and, although it will be a tough game, we have to go into this with confidence.”
Habib Beye and his family have taken to Tyneside famously since he arrived, and seems to have a good understanding with the fans, and with what the club is trying to achieve.
He’s probably the best signing we made last year, and we are looking forward to Habib having an even better season this time around.
We need him at his very best if we are to make the break-through we so desperately need this season.
