Tamas Kadar signed for Newcastle from Zalaegerszegi in Hungary last January and the 18 year-old center back has now made a successful comeback from the knee problem he first suffered last July, while training with the full Hungarian squad.
Tamas Kadar – recovered from injury
Tamas Kadar talked to the Evening Chronicle:
“It’s a really big present for me to play and train with top stars.” “It’s a great opportunity because I can learn something in every single minute of the training sessions.”“They are great and experienced players, so my eyes are always open and I am very keen to learn from them all.”
Both Kadar and Andy Carroll missed out on the European Championships Under-19 tournament during the summer when the Czechs finished in 3rd place.
“It’s a really big relief, because I’m a football player who fortunately hadn’t been seriously injured.” “The last four months and the operation was a nightmare for me. I missed a lot of opportunity to improve, to be a better player, which at my age is not a very happy thing.”
“I missed the Euros also, and I wasn’t part of the great Hungarian team which team reached the bronze medal final.” “Unfortunately, I suffered another injury after that during my recovery, so it took a bit more time than we planned.”
“Despite all of these problems, I thank the staff and that I was able to improve on my physical side, because I had a special program, so I feel much stronger in myself than earlier, and I hope I can show it on the pitch.”
“So I’m very happy to be fit again, and hope I can remain injury-free.”
Kadar returned from injury to yet another new manager in interim boss Joe Kinnear, his third manager in just 10 months after being signed by Sam Allardyce.
“I think that in my position it wasn’t a big problem and didn’t affect me, because I’m a young player who is a member of the reserve team, and I have to work as hard as possible every day, independently of who is the manager of the first team.”
“Anyway, I have learned a lot from every manager during my career, and I was in a very lucky situation because all of them were very nice to me.”
“I would like to be a better and even more professional player, and of course train and play without any injury.”
Tamas is just one of many top youngsters we’ve signed this year, and we really hope we can keep up the concentration on youth at the club, since it augers well for our future.
Like most of them he has an excellent temperament and character, and it wouldn’t surprise us if he’s a first teamer in a couple or so years, he’s that good.
