Davide Santon is one of a number of players who have been playing near their top form over the last two months, and in that time Newcastle have won five of their last six league games, and surged to 7th top of the Premier League, just 4 points out of second place.
Davide Santon – playing well for Newcastle
The 22-year-old is in his third season on Tyneside, after signing two and a half years ago from Inter-Milan for around £5M.
Davide, who has a six month old daughter Sienna, with his Geordie girlfriend, seems very settled on Tyneside, and he had this to say in the Shields Gazette today:
“It’s not easy to forget the amazing win at Old Trafford, but as I have said we don’t have to stop now we beat Man United.” “The next game is another important game. We have to make sure we play like that again.”
“We have to keep going, and try to win the game.” “Southampton are doing well. They have had two defeats in the last two games, but they started the season really well, and are in a good position.” “I think it will be a really good game.”
“I’m really enjoying myself.” “The team’s playing good football, and I’m really happy to play for Newcastle.” “I really, really like the team and the city. I want to give a lot to this club.” “I’m really happy, but I’m not 100% yet, because I’m just 22 years old.”
“I’ve got a lot to years for improvement.” “At the moment, the players are helping me a lot. I’m trying to play my best.” “I can still improve in what I’m doing.”
It’s good that Davide knows he can still improve and become an even better player than he is today.
Davide signed a five-year contract in August of 2011, so he is half way through that contract, and could be here at least until the summer of 2016, and he is now a much better player than the player who signed for us a couple of years ago.
Note: South Shields local artist Robert Olley has a new painting out called “Derby Day Home” and it can be personalized so that any surname can be put on the striker’s shirt – the one scoring the goal – take a look.
