As you would have expected, Emmanuel Riviere has been giving a lot of interviews after he was revealed as Newcastle’s 5th signing of the summer last night at around 6:00 pm local time, and as luck would have it I was tied up down here at Heathrow Airport – and will fly back to the US in three hours time.
Emmanuel Riviere – Newcastle United striker
One of those interviews is carried in the Chronicle this morning by Lee Ryder, and Emmanuel has said he came to Newcastle for the fans and the people of Newcastle.
This is what the 24 year-old said:
“I’ve watched a lot of matches on TV with Newcastle.” “And I come here for the fans and for the people.” “It’s a big team.” “I want to play with amazing people.”
“My dream has come in the Premier League and it is now reality.” “I am so happy my dream is alive.” “Now I work hard for the Premier League.”
The news was that his real goal was to play for Arsenal, but that was not to be – but he certainly seems absolutely delighted to be at Newcastle United, and hopefully he can score a good few goals for us in the future.
He seems like an emotional lad, and the Geordie crowd will be able to lift him to become a much better player in the future.
