Newcastle attacking midfielder Haris Vuckic has said today he is flattered and honored by interest from Manchester United.
Haris Vuckic – flattered by Manchester United reported interest
That has to be bad news for Newcastle fans, as the the 17-year-old Slovenian U-21 International is said t be interesting both the Red Devils and AC Milan.
Vuckic was signed by Newcastle 15 months ago, and penned a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Tyneside club.
Haris told Ekipa, a daily sports newspaper published in Ljubljana, Slovenia, today
“I heard the news about United wanting me, but if I’m honest, then I must confess I haven’t had any contact with them.”
“I only know what was written in the press,””But of course I’m really flattered. It is a great honor to be associated with such a big and marvellous club.”
“And yes, it is hard to say no to Alex Ferguson, who has a reputation of working very well with young players.”
“But really I don’t want to bother about such rumors. I’m just glad that I can play football again.”
Vuckic has only made three appearances for Newcastle this term after being sidelined with knee and ankle injuries since last October.
Vuckic, who stands 6’2″ tall, has impressed at Newcastle since he arrived a year last January, and has already appeared for the Slovenian U21 side.
“I was out injured for six months and that was the hardest thing in my life,”
“Now I am enjoying myself again. And of course we are champions and promoted to the Premier League, so these are good days for Newcastle United.”
“My only wish now is that I could play against Ipswich Town. That would be really something after all the problems I’ve had.”
We really hope that Haris can make an appearance for Newcastle before the end of the season, because there’s little doubt this boy is a star of the future.
Haris scored 2 goals last night for the Reserves, in the 5-1 hammering of Huddersfield Town at Whitley Park, and he looked in good form.
It would be a catastrophe if Haris leaves Newcastle United in the summer, and there’s got to be a way that the top clubs don’t come in and get all the best young players – otherwise competition will go down the drain.
But come to think of it – it already has.
