Former Newcastle United manager Glenn Roeder has urged Andy Carroll to clean up his act, and Glenn must now be the 63rd person to urge Andy to do that, over the last few months.
Andy Carroll – after scoring the winner on Sunday at the Emirates
One of the “problems” Andy has is that he’s simply a Newcastle United fan, who’s playing for his home town side, and he loves to go into the Newcastle City center, and mix with other Newcastle fans, and being photographed with them.
Those fans are just like him, but they don’t play with that famous number nine on their back, for the famous Newcastle United club.
Glenn Roeder knows all about Carroll, as he coached him when he was younger at Newcastle, and even gave Carroll his Newcastle debut back in 2007.
Glenn told Radio Five Live today:
“I am sure Newcastle manager Chris Hughton, will tell you how hard he works every day in training to make himself a better player but by living the way he is he will not fulfil his potential that he could possibly fulfil by having a bit of a quieter life.”
“Andy needs to realize that if he wants to get to where I am sure he does want to get to, because he is ambitious.” “He is a great lad around the training ground, a really good lad, coaches love working with him.”
With friends around him at Newcastle like captain Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton, who are now both first class professionals, you have to think that Andy will learn quickly from his mistakes.
We hope Andy will learn quickly from his mistakes.
