24-year-old Vurnon Anita has only been on Tyneside for fifteen months, but he’s already shown to Newcastle fans that he’s not only a good player, but he’s also a top class professional, who is now playing very well for the side.
Vurnon Anita – only thinking about Newcastle – good
Vurnon had a bit of a difficult first season on Tyneside last term, although he did manage to make 37 appearances for the side, but now he is in very good form and pushing players like Cheick Tiote and Yohan Cabaye, and whenever he’s come into the first team this season, he’s looked a very good player, who is quickly coming to terms with the Premier League.
And in the local papers today he has been asked about his chances of making the Dutch World Cup squad, and this is what he had to say:
“I don’t think about the World Cup, I think about Newcastle.” “If I play a lot here, maybe I get a call from the coach from Holland, and then we look forward.”
“But I take it step by step. First is Newcastle, and to play games here.” “The club is more important for me than the national team now.” “I must do my best here first, and then we can see what’s next.”
Those are good words from the 5 times capped Dutch International, and of course his attitude is just spot on.
Vurnon has so far played 48 times for Newcastle with one goal, and we expect the midfielder to get a lot of playing time this season, if he keeps up the very good form he has shown so far this season.
And he’s right to just concentrate on playing well for Newcastle, and everything else will take care of itself.
We’ve always been very impressed with this lad’s positive approach to things at Newcastle, and he;s now looking a good acquisition from Ajax.
