Nile Ranger And Haris Vuckic Both Shine On Saturday

Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton has talked again about our teenage Slovenian midfielder Haris Vuckic, and also London-born striker Nile Ranger.

Haris Vuckic – good game and great goal Saturday

It will be very interesting to see how Haris performs in pre-season, because if this lad is as good as we think he is, he should be showing through this season – big time.

The 17-year-old scored a terrific goal  in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Carlisle United, and it’s now part of Chris’ job to bring the youngster through the ranks at the club, and Haris could feature quite a bit this season.

Hughton told BBC Newcastle:

“He is a talent, he’s a player who we think has got a very good future at the club,” “We look forward to seeing him enjoy a promising career in a Newcastle shirt.”

Both Haris Vuckic and 19 year-old Nile Ranger had good games at Brunton Park, and will have done themselves no harm, with Chris still having to make the decision whether to send them out on loan next season.

Nile Ranger – good goal on Saturday

Chris talked about the young lads:

“They have not done themselves any harm,””Of course Ranger was involved more last season than Vuckic was, and he has developed.”

“Vuckic is a young player who was injured last season, so he’ll be delighted to have got through a good pre-season so far.”

We would expect at least on of these two youngsters to be sent out on loan next season, and with the club currently having so many strikers, it will probably be Nile Ranger.

Comments welcome.
