As well as being interviewed by the Evening Chronicle, new signing Leon Bent has also given an interview this morning to Newcastle United TV.
Leon Best – on Newcastle United TV
Leon talked to Newcastle United TV this morning:
“I just can’t wait for my chance to play in a winning team with so much quality – it’s all I’ve ever wanted,”
“I’m definitely coming here in what has been my best season yet. I’ve been injury free and have played almost every game.”
“I’ve also got ten goals now and have had a couple of good little runs where I’ve scored in successive games.”
“This is a huge chance for me to show what I can do in a top team.”
“I feel like I’m in good form and feel confident that I’ll be able to score more goals with these players around me.”
Best only got to know about Newcastle’s interest on Sunday night, and says he didn’t have to think too long before saying yes:
“I didn’t have to think about it – it was unbelievable.””It’s a dream come true to play for this football club and I’m so excited – over excited really!”
“I just can’t wait to get started and meet the boys and help get us back into the Premier League, because that is where this club belongs.”
We expect Leon to start the game on Friday night, and probably be partnered with in-form Danish International Peter Lovenkrands.
That’s unless Chris Hughton wants to play 4-3-3, and play more of our strikers, much like Kevin Keegan did a couple of years ago.
That would be interesting.
