Our on-loan left back from Chelsea, Patrick van Aanholt, has said some nice words about Newcastle United FC today to the radio station BBC Newcastle.
Patrick van Aanholt – Newcastle are brilliant
Patrick could be playing his last game at Watford tomorrow, unless his loan spell can be extended for a week or two, to allow out left-back Jose Enrique time to fully recover from his injury.
The 19 year-old Dutchman told BBC Newcastle today:
“Newcastle are a massive club, I’ve enjoyed my time.” “Newcastle are top of the league, they’ve got a brilliant team and I think they will win the league.”
And of course Patrick has had enough time on Tyneside to know how passionate the Newcastle United fans are, and the supporters took quickly to the lad, who has turned in some very good performances for Newcastle.
So it’s small wonder than that he is already well liked by the supporters. 😀
“I think they like me, I’ve played six games, and when I go out in town people recognise me,”
“When my family was here, I went out for dinner with them and people came up to me, and I was like ‘that’s what happens here’.”
“They love football over here, 24-7, and it’s good.”
That’s certainly true, and even more true when the team is doing so well.
It’s the goldfish bowl Jermaine Jenas used to talk about when he left Newcastle for Tottenham, – but hey if you are really passionate about football – it’s really called heaven – football heaven.
