Ayoze Perez was one of the few success stories on Tyneside along with another new signing last summer Daryl Janmaat, and the youngster is currently relaxing back home with his family in Tenerife as his second season on Tyneside is about to begin.
The first one was very successful as the 5’10” striker increased both his strength and build and proved he can score goals in the Premier League with 7 goals on his first season.
What a goal this was from Ayoze Perez at West Brom
And one of those goals he scored at West Brom was a Lionel Messi type goal as he somehow back-heeled the with his right foot into the goal.
It reminds me of a goal I scored at Walker Park when I was just 9 years old, and as I remember (hint – my memory is shot) mine was a little bit more difficult and I put it in with my weaker left foot!
Perez was simply great for us last season, and he is already a popular lad with the Newcastle fans, and this is what he’s said today:
“It’s a learning curve,” “I feel that I have learned a lot by coming here to the Premier League.”
“There’s a lot that I need to improve, but overall I feel that I have grasped the way football is played in England.”
“Hopefully, that improvement will help me through next season.” “The holiday is a time to unplug and get away from football for a little bit.”
“We need to recharge our batteries and come back with fresh ideas and more energy to improve in the next season.”
We’re hoping Perez continues to improve like he did last season when for much of the season he was our number once choice up front.
That’s not bad for a lad that signed on to be part of Peter Beardsley’s Development squad.
And here’s that wonder goal from last season, and it’s some nice passing play from Newcastle leading up to the goal.
