Why Would Newcastle Be Interested In Suazo?


Newcastle and Atletico Madrid have again been linked with a move for striker David Suazo, but why would Newcastle be interested in the striker?

David Suazo – is this player good enough?

The Inter Milan forward, who is currently on loan to Benfica in Portugal, is reported to have drawn the attention of both high-profile clubs after an impressive season in Portugal, and this is not the first time this season that Newcastle have been linked with the player.

But Newcastle will also not be able to move for any player in the summer, until we finish the vital 8 games of the season, and just hope we can survive one of the worst seasons at  Newcastle in recent memory.

Suazo is injured right now, after picking up an injury against Sporting Lisbon, but Suazo has admitted that he may leave Benfica for pastures anew, once his loan spell comes to an end.

The 29-year-old has not ruled out a move to either England or Spain, as he told skysports.com today:

“I am injured at the moment on-loan here at Benfica,”

“I have very much enjoyed my time in Portugal but I have a lot of options open to me.”

“There are clubs in the Premier League and La Liga expressing an interest in me but I will wait and see what happens at the end of the season.”

“My main concern at the moment is to get fit again.”

The 6′ tall Suazo (full name Óscar David Suazo Velázquez) was born in 1979 in San Pedro Sula, and has played for his country, Honduras 43 times with 14 goals. He spent 8 years at 1999 with Cagliari, in the Italian Serie A, where he played 255 and scored 95 goals, before he moved in 2007 to Internationale, currently managed by the special one.

But we would have thought there would be some younger strikers that Newcastle could go after, but the quality of those signings will depend entirely on which league we play in next season.

We are all hoping that’s still the Premier League. 😀

    No chance of this regime signing him. Only signings we will make will have a potential sell on value that will make the club a profit.

    Ryantoon – thats my way of thinking too.

    Gutted gonna miss the ressies on Monday at 7pm at SJP as will be in Benidorm.

    I do recommend that if anyone can make it – GO.

    Danny Guthrie is playing (chronicle) and its against Manure’s reserves.

    Ryantoon there is something wrong with your spelling because in aa previous text you say kris boyd is better than our strikers. Get your keyboard fixed quick either that or you have brain damage.

    Kis Boyd is a fat…

    Harewood is a fat…

    Both aren’t great.

    Suazo is good. I’d take him. But it depends on the price because of his age.

    You mean ‘ because he’s a crock and we need A replacement for Viduka’ surely?
    The physios at Newcastle have it written into their contracts, man. – the Duke of Pork is like an overtime bonus.
