It seems like 18 year-old Haris Vuckic, our young up-and-coming midfield star from Slovenia just loves life on Tyneside.
Haris Vuckic – loves football-mad Newcastle
Haris lives very close to the Benton Training grounds with his father, and he walks around the corner to training every day, so no apparent need yet for those big expensive cars some of the lads have.
Haris seems to be adapting so well to life on Tyneside, and he is growing quite attached to the club, which of course has a great tradition and terrific fans.
The 6ft 3in Slovenian seems to have grown one inch in height since he arrived on Tyneside, and he dreams of his chance to play for the Newcastle United side on a regular basis.
This is what he said to the Evening Chronicle today:
“If I get my chance, I would like to think I can offer the team something like he can and I will be looking to show that.”“I like to go to the city. This is a football-mad place.”
“When I go into the city, sometimes people recognise me and ask me for my signature.” “I love the game and the people here. I just want to do well for these fans and my team.”
Haris will get a big chance tomorrow night to again show what he’s made of, when Newcastle meet Arsenal, for the right to progress to the 5th round of the Carling Cup.
While the Premier League must remain Newcastle’s number one priority this season, it would still be great to get through the the quarter-finals of the League Cup.
