Xisco has become the first Newcastle player to publicly admit the crisis at Newcastle United is hurting the players.
Xisco – problems at Newcastle affecting players
The young 22 year-old Spanish striker talked about the controversy surrounding the club yesterday:
“I haven’t been able to find out too much about the causes of the controversy,” “The players are kept on the fringes of all this but these are matters that do not help the team’s performances at all.”
“We will need to remain focused, play our football and try to win matches. Then we will see what happens once the situation sorts itself out.”
“Right now we just have to concentrate on getting a good string of results and nothing more.”
We don’t know too much about Xisco, 22, but he played quite well on Saturday, and still managed to score on his debut in the 2-1 defeat by Hull, which was hardly an easy game to play in.
Despite the instability at the Tyneside club, the Spanish Under-21 international says he has been treated like a god at Newcastle and remains very optimistic about the future as he continued:
“Newcastle’s team is built to compete for a place in Europe, but it is clear we have not started the season as everyone had wished,”
“However, there is still time for us to turn matters around. Last season we started well, but that did not mean anything in the end.”
“I am sure we will climb the table by working hard. There are quality players at the club. I am confident we will improve on our poor start.”
The lad looks like another good one, and he certainly has the right attitude, and it looks like he’ll get a long run in the side with Alan Smith now looking to be on the sidelines for 3 months with an Achilles injury, which seems to require an operation.
More bad news for the club this morning – when will it end?
Soon we hope.
