Newcastle United’s Cameroon midfielder, Geremi, could still play a big part in ensuring Newcastle remain in the Premier League this season.
Geremi – on International duty with Cameroon
Geremi is nothing if not an experienced player, and it has to be the experienced lads at the club we will need to rely on, if we are to avoid the drop this season.
Geremi is on International duty with Cameroon, and we have to hope that he doesn’t come back to Newcastle with an injury, like Damien Duff did a couple of days ago from Dublin.
And today Geremi has admitted it’s hard for him to put Newcastle’s relegation fight to the back of his mind during this International week.
He told Football365 today:
“It is difficult to divide your attention,”
“One is half thinking about how to help Cameroon qualify for the World Cup and also thinking about helping my club avoid relegation.”
“But there is only so much one can do. So I have to concentrate on the national team assignment to make sure we get victory so when I return back we can continue to fight to help the club avoid relegation.”
We’re pleased to hear that Geremi is concerned about Newcastle’s plight, and so should every other player at the club.
Newcastle have one of the highest wage bills in the Premier League, and are now in 3rd bottom place, and that has to be a study in incompetence and poor management.
But as Danny Guthrie said yesterday, it’s now up to these vastly overpaid Newcastle players, to start earning their wages and pull this club to safety.
If they showed half the spirit and will of the Newcastle supporters, the club would hardly be in this kind if difficulty.
If Newcastle do get relegated, heaven forbid, they will go down in history as the most under-achieving squad ever in the Premier League – and they’ll deserve that title.
