Cheick Tiote is a huge favorite with Newcastle fans, and when you see what the 24 year-old has said today – it’s hardly surprising.
Cheick Tiote – after scoring that great goal
Cheick seems to have absolutely no intention of leaving the Newcastle club, and we hope he can bring all his family over from the Ivory Coast and have them settle with him in Newcastle over the next few years.
This is what Tiote told the Evening Chronicle today:
“If you want to go to the next level you have to buy some good new players.” “You have to keep the good players as well.”
“I’m happy to sign this new contract. I have ambition for this team.” “I want to do my best for the team and the manager.”
“I have confidence in him and we have to prove it on the pitch.” “It’s good news for the fans and good news for me now that they know I am staying with them.”
“Now they don’t think I am leaving Newcastle.” “I think it is important for a player like me that I show I can do my best for the fans.”
“They come all the time to the games and they are so good.” “I love them and that’s why I do my best.”
And it seems that Alan Pardew interrupted the interview with the Evening Chronicle, and on a lighter note asked Tiote:
“Cheick, it’s great you have signed your contract – now will you improve your discipline?”
Alan’s referring to his poor disciplinary record, and he’s already picked up 9 yellow cards this season so far.
And Tiote’s didn’t hesitate one second and answered:
“Yes it is true, I need to improve it!”
As we said he’s a smashing lad, and he’s the type of player Alan can build his Newcastle side around, because of his enormous energy in the center of midfield, which allows Newcastle to play with two strikers up front.
That’s just one of the many pluses Cheick Tiote brings to the Newcastle side, and we are simply delighted this lad has signed a long term contract at the club – and better than that – he seems to have very intention of staying on Tyneside.
And if the lads can start winning games, like today against Bolton, it will only help in getting Joey Barton and Jose Enrique signed up long term to stay with the Tyenside club.
