Solano Thanks God For Privelege Of Working For Bobby Robson


Nobby Solano was one of the best and most popular players ever to wear the famous black and white shirt of Newcastle.

Nobby Solano – hailing the Newcastle fans

And today Nobby recalls some fond memories of when he played for the great Bobby Robson, while he managed his home-town Newcastle club.

The Peruvian football legend said:

“I thank God I had the privilege to work with Sir Bobby when I was at Newcastle.”

“He was one of the best I have worked with. I used to phone up his mobile and play my trumpet down the phone to him.”

“He didn’t know it was me, but one day somebody told him that I knew how to play the trumpet.”

“So then he worked out that it must be me. He called me up and just laughed with me down the phone.”

Now that the sordid Ashley-Keegan affair is behind the club, we have an opportunity to help Newcastle become great again.

And despite all the horrible goings on over the summer at the Tyneside club, we are still fairly well placed at the top of the Championship, after 11 games.

We could be on the way back, and that’s only fitting for the great club Newcastle undoubtedly are.

Howay The Lads!!

    Strange for Nobby to come out with this as I thought Sir Bobby’s treatment of him was appalling.

    Excellent player, along with Shearer and Given the best value for money players in recent years.

    Also – never seen anybody bring the ball under control so quickly and easily – no matter how it was fizzed at him on the wing. No wonder Maradona called him “the little maestro”.
