Remember Nacho Gonzalez, the Uruguayan International midfield players who has been injured all season – he may be fit soon.
Nacho Gonzales – can he help Newcastle?
We’ve mentioned many times what a waste of money Ignacio Gonzalez has been in his loan spell from Valencia since last August, and during January, Joe Kinnear even said he would probably be sent back to Spain.
He’s made just two substitute appearances but we must have paid his wages plus around £500K for the privilege of having him play, or not play, for Newcastle United.
The frustrated Uruguay international has been troubles since very early September with an Achilles injury, and appeared only against Hull City and West Ham last September.
Newcastle’s Iain Dowie today actually talked about the phantom player:
“Nacho has had an Achilles problem for a while.” “He’s back and he’s been training with me for three or four days.”
“He was in full training and then had a rest.” “He will fully train again on Thursday and then we will look at giving him a game in the reserves at Liverpool next week.”
We’ve been sent many notes over the season from Newcastle fans in Uruguay who very high on this player, and say he is very good and very creative too, and could do a good job for Newcastle, if he could only get fit. Certainly when he did play for Newcastle he looked very enthusiastic.
Well this is good news, and as we’ve said before we need some heroes at Newcastle if we are to survive relegation, and nothing would please us more than having Nacho be one of the them.
Howay The Lads!!
