You´ve got to just love young Ayoze Perez, who only joined us a short eighteen months ago and it´s been a very turbulent time at the club since he joined – even for Newcastle.
But the young Spanish striker is mentally tough enough and he´s a good enough professional to take it in his side – and he still loves it at Newcastle.
Ayoze Perez – getting better at Newcastle
This is one lad we have to keep
There are a number of reports coming out that say both Tottenham and Manchester United want to sign him in January, but for his part young Perez has said the following about all the speculation:
“I am happy here.” “I am playing and I am getting better.” “I cannot ask for anything else because I am happy here.”
“I hope one day I can play for Spain – it will be a dream for me,” “But I will have to work hard because I am still young.”
“I have a lot to do to achieve that dream.”
Perez received the North East Football Writers’ Association’s young player of the year trophy at Ramside Hall on Sunday.
He was keen to come to Newcastle last year because he was promised first team football if he was good enough and he turned down moves to huge clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid for that chance.
And he´s taken his opportunity at Newcastle and played 51 games for us with 10 goals and he seems to be improving all the time.
Newcastle would be stupid to sell him in January, but given the history and ineptitude of those running the club – that unfortunately remains a possibility.
We hope it doesn´t happen.
He could become a great player for us and he´s also a smashing lad.
Now if only those in charge of Newcastle United will act decisively – do something – and turn things around at the club – and quickly too.
Sadly, all we keep hearing via the local papers is that there will be no knee-jerk reaction from those in charge at the club.
That´s worrying because last season we almost ended up in the Championship because there was no knee-jerk reaction to some terrible results and performances.
In fact, there was no reaction at all.
If that happens again this season and the results don´t improve quickly – we will be relegated.
