Tams Kadar, our 19 year-old Hungarian center-back, who is very well though of at the club, may get his chance tonight at Nottingham Forest.
Tamas Kadar – may get his chance tonight
Tamas Kadar was asked to stay on Tyneside and did not participate at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup with Hungary, earlier in the season, and the Hungarians finally reached the semi-final of that competition.
He was asked to stay behind because of Newcastle’s small squad, as he had played very well in pore-season, but he seems not to have minded missing out for his country.
Tamas told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Every young player is striving for the first team.” “I thought I would be involved in the World Cup, but Newcastle said I had to stay in case of injuries.”
“That’s why I didn’t play in the tournament.” “You want to play for your country, but it’s important for me to get games for Newcastle.”
Kadar suffered a broken leg playing for the reserve team last season in a 2-1 derby win over Sunderland, but seems to have recovered well, and we fully expect this lad to come through this season at Newcastle.
Tamas indicates he has had no problems with the injury this season, even though he missed the Carling Cup clash at Peterborough United with a groin problem, when he would have had a first team outing.
“The injury is fine.” “Last season I went back to Hungary after it happened.”
“ The injury happened because I was trying to help the team win.”
“But there are no problems for me now.”
Depending on how out central defensive pair Coloccini and Taylor do this afternoon in their fitness tests before the game, will determine whether Tamas gets his chance or not.
