Gabriel Obertan scored the only goal of the game last night just a a couple of minutes into the second half, and it was a screamer from the 23 year-old, after Sammy Ameobi, who also had a good game had set him up in brilliant style.
Gabby Obertan – after scoring a screamer
Gabby moved on from Manchester United because he wasn’t getting enough games at the Red devils, he played 28 times with one goal over two seasons.
And the Frenchman has played more since he’s been at Newcastle – he has 35 appearances with 2 goals and this is his second season on Tyneside.
But it’s not surprising that Gabby wants to play even more, and hopes to see more playing time in the Premier League.
This is what Gabby said after the game last night:
“I don’t get to play much in the Premier League, so it’s good to play in the Europa League and persuade the gaffer that I can hopefully play more games in the league.” “Overall tonight though, it’s the win that is the most important thing.”
Obertan has a certain Ben Arfa ahead of him for the right wing position, but with Newcastle having so many games this season, the former Bordeaux winger will definitely see more playing time, with performances like the one he put in last night.
