Kazenga LuaLua put in another good performance last night for the Reserves against Sunderland, and helped the lads to a good 2-1 win against our local rivals.
Kazenga LuaLua – may get his chance at Man City
Now the 18 year-old hopes that his good form will have caught the eye og manager Joe Kinnear.
Kazenga told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I hope that some good reports go through to the manager ahead of Man City.” “All I can do is try my best in training and in the reserve team.”
“You always try to keep on impressing and I hope to get my chance soon.” “I’d love to be on the bus for that game.”
“I know Nicky and Danny can’t play in that game and I hope that the game at Man City is my chance.” “It’s a great stadium and there are some good players there.”
“They have been spending money, but I think that Newcastle can go there and get a result and I want to be part of that.”
LuaLua is of course the younger brother of former Newcastle striker Lomana LuaLua, who we got from Colchester United, in 2000. Kazenga has been restricted to just two substitute appearances so far this season.
“We’re all happy to beat Sunderland – you are at any level to win a derby.”
“To do it away from home is brilliant for us, so we were all really happy in the dressing room afterwards.”
“I live in the city and I know how important it is to beat the Mackems.” “Before the game Richard (Money) didn’t need to tell us we needed to win because we all knew.”
“It is bad if you lose especially if you live in Newcastle, everybody wants you to beat Sunderland.”
“When the first team lost against them in the early part of the season, I knew how bad it was even though I was out with an injury.”
And of course right at the end of the Sunderland game there was a tragix injury to Tamas Kadar, who broke his shin bone and will now be out for up to 6 months:
“There were tough tackles going in and nasty challenges.” “Tamas has picked up a bad injury and it was not good for him.”
That will be it for Tamas this season, but we have a suspicion that this boy will be challenging hard for the first team before next season is out.
