Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez will just get better from now on, after the 21 year-old made his first start in the Premier league yesterday at Tottenham, and scored the winning goal after 58 minutes with a great header.
Ayoze Perez – after scoring the winner
That’s what Alan Pardew thinks, after the 21-year-old signing from Spanish Second Division club Tenerife, who has now appeared 10 times for Newcastle this season, scored the winner yesterday.
And it seems Alan Pardew is a big fan of the talented youngster.
After the game yesterday this is what the Newcastle manager had to say about Ayoze:
“He is a really great individual talent.” “He hasn’t quite got the strength and power that you associate with the Premier League, but that will come to him.”
“He’s worked really, really hard. We’re so pleased with him. The players love him so they were really made up that he scored the winner.”
“He goes to Spain to an awards ceremony, and hopefully he might pick up an award or two there.”
That last line is a reference that Perez traveled to Spain from London after the match, to attend the Liga Fútbol Profesionals (LFP) Awards dinner, and Ayoze has been nominated for a couple of awards.
Maybe when he’s over there, the Spanish U21 International can talk to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi about the goal he scored for us yesterday. 😀
Perez looks like a great player in the making, and he’s certainly got the temperament and confidence needed to become an excellent player on Tyneside.
He could start again at Manchester City on Wednesday night in the Capital One Cup.
