Ever since we saw David Santon race down the touchline with Sammy Ameobi and mob Jonas Gutierrez, after Jonas scored that wonderful goal at Molineaux a few weeks ago, we’ve taken a shining to the young Italian.
Davide Santon – seems to just love Newcastle
And it seems that Davide has settled so quickly on Tyneside, that his parents have now returned to Italy, earlier than first planned, and back to their home in Portomaggiore in Northern Italy.
His parents are certain that Davide will be taken very good care of at Newcastle, and they’re right about that.
Davide himself has talked to the local press today, and said he can make the Newcastle club his family, and in general seems to just love things at the Newcastle club.
This is what Davide Santon told the local press today:
“The team here work in a lot more close quarters than I am used to. Everybody looks out for each other and backs their team-mates up. It is a really great experience for me to be here.”
“My parents have gone back home to Italy now.” “That’s because I have accustomed to Newcastle very quickly and it is a great experience to be here.”
“The experience is only something that I feel can get better as the weeks go on.” “I can’t wait to start my first game.” “This is the next logical step for me and it will help me achieve my dream of playing regular football in the Premier League.”
“The magic of the stadium is there for all to see. Even when the team is behind, anything seems possible with the fans we have here.” “It is one of the reasons why I decided to come here.”
“And I have really enjoyed seeing them.” “Now I just want to play in front of them on a more consistent basis.”
With words like that Davide will very quickly become a fan favorite, and of course this lad can turn out to be a stellar buy for the Tyneside club, and he may even start for Newcastle against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
Santon initially moved his parents, who hail from the northern Italian town of , to stay with him to support him during his early months on Tyneside.
The 6’2″ Italian International could even start on Saturday against Wigan, and there seems to be a lot of talk about him coming in at right back for Danny Simpson, with Ryan Taylor retaining his place at left back, where he’s so far done such a stellar job for Newcastle this season.
It will be great to see Davide playing on a regular basis, and the lad seems born to play for Newcastle, with the kind of attitude he has, and he could turn into a wonderful player in that famous black and white shirt.
