Not much is going right for Newcastle at the moment, and some bad publicity for the club today and it’s from 15 year-old Landskrona youngster Erik Andersson, who is about to reject any offer from Newcastle, following his trial on Tyneside.
15 year-old Erik Andersson – to reject Newcastle
The 15 year-old recently had a trial at Newcastle and also at Italian giants Juventus, and it seems he wasn’t too impressed with us, and he will stay in Sweden at Landskrona BoIS – a Swedish club located in Landskrona, which currently plays in the second highest league in Swedish football.
Of course he may not even get an offer from either club, and Newcastle have said they were unwilling to sign players under 18 at Newcastle, given our distinct lack of success with those youngsters over the last four years or so.
Apparently the lad has great potential, and hence his trials at some top clubs, but he feels moving to a big club may not be in his best interests and he seems ready to stay at Landskrona, as he told Fotbollsdirekt.se:
“I have had a very good season,” “I believe I will progress more if I stay at home.”
But the youngster was not too impressed with his trial at Newcastle and he continued:
“Newcastle didn’t talk to me, it was a bit strange.” “It was much more fun at Juventus, with better football and nicer players.”
Maybe they didn’t talk to him because our lads were probably becoming extremely worried about our league form, but this doesn’t look too good for us when it makes the English press.
