Gini Wijnaldum must be sky-high at the moment after his great performance for Newcastle yesterday in the 6-2 win against Norwich at St. James Park – and Gini scored four goals for us.
But the Dutch International is a tip top professional and he knows he must produce again in the next game – against Sunderland next Sunday.
Gini Wijnaldum – want to repay the fans
This is what Gini has told the press:
“When I walk down the street or go into the supermarket, Newcastle fans talk to me.” “They talk directly about this game against Sunderland.”
“I have already seen how much impact this game has for supporters.” “I see what they want from the players, we must try to win this game.”
“To get four, be part of the first win and work hard is great. It will give us a lot of confidence for the next match.”
“When it goes bad you know supporters will be angry at players who were bought for most money.”
“But that was not the case here. They supported me.” “My team-mates and all the people here supported me. So I feel at home.”
“That’s why I can give the performances like I do now. I want to repay them.” “What I will do now is enjoy the moment and next week I will focus on Sunderland.”
“It’s not normal to score four goals in a game. I will try, but it will be hard. These are special moments in your career.”
Over the last five game we have played Sunderland we have been in top form and heavy favorites to win the game – and that looks like it may be the case this time too.
But we have lost five game sin a row and been outfought and outplayed in the vast majority of them – Sunderland wanted the win more than our players did.
And this is going to be another banana skin game for Newcastle if we take Sunderland lightly.
They will be working their socks off to get their first win of the season in front of their own fans and draw level with Newcastle.
