Tamas Kadar is now back in Hungary as he recovers for the next several months from the broken shin-bone (tibia) he endured earlier in the week.
But the lad’s attitude is absolutely first class – read on.
Tamas Kadar – very promising Newcastle youngster
Tamas Kadar talked to the local Evening Chronicle from his Hungarian home today:
“I am shocked because this injury came from nothing and at the worst time.”
“I felt my fitness was OK. I sat on the bench five times for the first team, and my goal this season was to make my Premier League debut.”
“I try to be positive, but it is not easy because the doctors told to me I will have a four to six months’ break, which is much too long.”
“The only one thing which helped me to be positive was the result.”
“We won the game against our biggest rival team, and I was able to save our goal in the last minutes before the injury.”
“I broke my leg, but I reached the ball and cleared it.”
However, the Hungarian under-19 captain holds no grudge against Sunderland or the player that inflicted the injury, after enduring such a tough setback in what has been a very good first season for the very promising youngster.
“The player kicked my leg instead of the ball but it was not his fault.”“It is happening on the football field and is a part of the game.”
“I am a defender and I have learned from every trainer or manager of mine that my job is to defend and stop strikers from scoring.”
“I made it difficult and kept the ball away from our goal.”
“That was my job, and I was able to make it successful and that is the most important thing for me and for my club.”
“I suffered a bad injury, but a consolation prize for me was that he was not able to score a goal – that is the most important thing for a defender.”
Now, though, working with Newcastle’s medical team, Kadar is aiming to be fit as soon as possible and make a rapid recovery and continued:
“I hope I can be fit as soon as possible.”
“I can promise if the same situation happens again it will be no problem for me to block shots again in a Newcastle United shirt.”
You have to admit this boy has a fantastic attitude, and he will have gained a lot of support from the fans for the way he has conducted himself at the club this season, and especially after his terrible injury.
But we have a feeling a lad with this type of guts and attitude can make it big time at Newcastle.
And we’re not the only ones, because the word from inside the club is that Tamas is probably the most promising youngster we have at the club right now, and the 6’3″ youngster was already getting Joe Kinear’s attention.
We look to Tamas coming back next season as strong as ever.
