It seems that Chris Hughton will be willing to give more games to Slovenian 17 year-old Haris Vuckic next season.
Haris Vuckic – we’ll see more of him next season
By the time pre-season training comes around in July, it could be that Haris has been at the World Cup finals in South Africa with the Slovenian squad.
Rumors back in Slovenia suggest Vuckic has a decent chance to make the squad.
Chris talked about Haris’ appearance on Saturday in the second half and told the Evening Chronicle today:
“What I was able to do was move things round a bit.” “I was able to give Vuckic an outing as well.”
“I did want to wait until we were winning the game because it was important that we won it.”
“But it was nice to give him the opportunity and we’ll be seeing a bit more of him next season.”
Haris almost scored immediately after coming on yesterday, but his shot was just wide of the post.
If indeed Haris can come through well next season we’ll be in good shape, as we also expect Tamas Kadar to come through big time, and of course look to Andy Carroll to continue his vast improvement of this season.
So Newcastle do have a lot more improvement still to see from their younger players in the squad.
Three or four new players in the summer is what Chris will be looking to bring in before pre-season training comes around in July.
