Frank de Boer, the Ajax manager has given an interview in the Evening Chronicle today and he has said that Newcastle’s potential new signing Vurnon Anita is one of the hardest working players he has ever seen, and he deserves to move to a club like Newcastle, who are a great club and have a good team, and are one of the biggest clubs in England, and he says that Vurnon can be very proud of the move. We certainly agree with that – couldn’t have said it better.
But the real news is that Newcastle are dealing with one or two matters that have come out of his medical.
Frank de Boer – Ajax manager full of praise for Newcastle
This is what Frank had to say today in the Evening Chronicle interview:
“Of course he goes to Newcastle United with my best wishes.” “He is one of the hardest working young players I have ever seen.” “He deserves a move to a club like Newcastle United.”
“For me he gave everything during his time here.” “As I say, he gives everything for you.” “He never complained once to me about having to drop back into another position.”
“In training he works like he is playing a game and that it means everything.” “In the one and half years I worked with him he did not stop working.” “That is what has resulted in his transfer to Newcastle.”
“Newcastle fans will see a player who can deal with the game in England.” “He gives 300% for you. He is always concentrating on his game and he never ever gives up.” “He has a bright future ahead.”
“It is a great move by Newcastle United, and they are a great club and have a good team.” “They are one of the biggest clubs in England and Vurnon can be very proud of the move.”
We are waiting for the formal announcement that Vurnon is a Newcastle player, but the Evening Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle are currently analyzing the results of his medical, which apparently did take place yesterday.
And they report that “one or two matters need to be tied up.”
We have to hope those one or two matters are not serious, but that at least explains the delay in the announcement.
