Danny Guthrie joined Newcastle from Liverpool last August and it’s been a torrid time for the 23 year-old these last 12 months.
Guthrie – happy with Newcastle move
The fee was estimated to be £2M, so that’s a good deal with Danny continuing to improve.
Danny has so far appeared 31 times (27 starts) for Newcastle with 4 goals.
The Shrewsbury born 23 year-old said today:
“I left Liverpool to get first-team football and despite everything I’ve not regretted it. It was a tough decision to move on in the first place and it was a difficult first season at Newcastle.”
“But I’m really enjoying it again and hopefully we can get this club back to where it belongs.”
“I think the biggest worry we have is injuries and suspension. The squad is too thin. We need some good luck with injuries and we should just about be okay.”
We remember Danny saying last season that to be a great midfielder he would need to score more goals – just like Gerrard and Lampard do.
And it looks like he’s making some progress in that area, having already scored twice in 4 games this campaign, and that equals his goals total for the whole of last season.
We expect great things from Guthrie this season.
