Our right wing wonder – 25 year-old Wayne Routledge – who has shown great form so far for Newcastle, has today given a good interview to the Evening Chronicle in which he waxes lyrical about Newcastle.
Wayne Routledge – loves it at Newcastle club
This is what Wayne, who is already a firm fan favorite on Tyneside, told the Chronicle today:
“This is the best club I’ve ever been at.”
“I’ve been treated really, really well and the buzz you get out of playing in front of 52,000 fans is just something you don’t get at most other clubs.
“And now we’re are back in the Premier League it’s going to be even better.”
Routledge was always considered a top young player, but he has never really attained that promise – not yet anyway.
And it seems that Wayne thinks he has something to prove once Newcastle start to play back in England’s top league, as he continued:
“I want to show I can still do it in the Premier League, and hopefully this is now my chance to do that.”
“I’ve always been confident that I could deliver in the top division if I got the chance.” “But everywhere I’ve been I have not always been given that chance.”
“I’ve never given up hope of getting back to the Premier League and to get that chance with such a big club like Newcastle is incredible.”
“I’ve been given the chance at Newcastle and now I want to show my appreciation to the staff and the fans by going out there and doing it on the pitch.”
Wayne has certainly made a very promising start to his Newcastle career, and has 17 appearances, with 15 starts and 3 terrific goals.
How well Wayne fares next season will decide how Newcastle do in their first season back in the Premiership – we have to think Routledge is going to do very well – or at least we certainly hope so.
