Tamas Kadar will need to put his international career on hold for the sake of Newcastle United, and he doesn’t mind that one little bit.
Tamas Kadar – wants to help Newcastle to promotion
The 6′ 2″ defender was set to be called up by Hungary for the prestigious Under-20 World Cup in Egypt in late September, but Newcastle have asked Kadar to stay on Tyneside, and miss the 3 week long tournament, to help the Tyneside club.
The 19-year-old very promising youngster seems happy to stay, as it means he is thought highly of by manager Chris Hughton.
Kadar told the Shields Gazette today:
“Newcastle said I can’t go,” “I will stay here and do my best because my club is Newcastle, and if Newcastle say, ‘stay here’, then I stay here.”
“It’s the World Cup for the Under-20s, which is for three weeks.” “It’s a long time to be away from here, and I want to play in the Newcastle first team.”
“If I go home, I’ll do my best there, but if I stay here, then I’ll do my best for Newcastle.’ “Wherever I am, I want to play.”
Tamas is a great prospect at Newcastle, but if the club signs 20 year old Craig Cathcart, from the Red Devils, on loan this coming Tuesday, there will be significant competition for the Hungarian in central defense.
But Kadar can also play at left back, and if Jose Enrique is ever injured this season, Tamas could get his chance at left-back. That’s the way Seb Bassong got his breakthrough last year at Newcastle, and we all know how good the Frenchman turned out.
Kadar got his first start against Lee Clark’s Huddersfield a week last Wednesday alongside Danny Simpson.
And Kadar was a late substitute in Monday night’s great 1-0 win over Leicester City, when he turned out in central midfield as Newcastle saw that game out.
Hungary begin their Under-20 World Cup campaign against Honduras on September 27.
