Haris Vuckic is getting a lot of attention at the club, given the lad’s been outstanding in training this season.
Haris Vuckic – rapid progress on Tyneside
Haris turned 17 in August, is a long long way form home in Ljubljana, Slovenia, but with his father Mirsad living with him in his home in Benton, he can walk to training every morning – and that’s what he does.
“The main aims for me at the moment are just to work hard in training.” “After that we will see what happens.”
“Coming away has been a big experience but to have my father here helps me a lot.” “If I am feeling sad, he will come to talk to me.”
“But the people of Newcastle have been very good to us and it is an enjoyable place to live.”
Vuckic was a Slovenia U19 International at just 16, and after watching the Scotland – Slovenia game yesterday, we wonder how long it will be before this lad is playing for his country’s senior side – not too long .
He should become an U21 International this season and don’t be that surprised if he gets an early call up to the full squad – if he can force his way into the Newcastle side.
And Vuckic has always been able to score goals, and he continued:
“My position is midfield.” “But I’ve always scored goals since I started playing.”
“It would an amazing experience to do it with Newcastle.”
If some of our top youngsters come through this season, like Haris. Kadar, Ranger and LuaLua and the side does really well to win the league this season (yes = that’s an assumption), we may not need to buy too many new players next summer.
Certainly our expensive signings over the last 10 years have nearly all been duds. We’d be a lot happier if we can recruit the lads when they are still young, and wait one or two years until they come through.
There’s at least two big advantages to that – the lads are more dedicate to the club, and it’s a lot lot cheaper.
