Here is our third and final piece from Mitro’s terrific interview in the Telegraph today.
And maybe it’s the one where Mitro is the most outspoken and he talks about how difficult he was for his parents to raise him – because he was so aggressive.
And now he’s the father of a son he will be experiencing just how difficult being a parent can be – although the challenges of parenting increase significantly as the boy gets older.
That’s said from experience.

Here’s some of what Mitro has said today:
“My father said I would be a criminal or a kick boxer.” “I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t play football. Maybe something where I can use my adrenalin.”
“Maybe something like boxing. I had a lot of energy when I was a child. I was difficult for my parents. I can see me in my boy now as well.”
“I know how hard it must have been for my parents. My mum always said ‘You will see’, and now I see it.”
“We have very good team spirit and we are winning lots. I have to wait for my chance and when I get my chance I have to show people I can score goals and I know how to play.
“Maybe last season I played more, but we are in good shape,”
Mitro got another very good brace today that gave Newcastle all 3 points at Deepdale and we now have 34 points from the first 15 league games and are still 3 points clear at the top.
Mitro has scored 4 goals in the last 4 days and now has 5 goals for the season.
