Christian Atsu seems to have found the club he wants to stay at and after being loaned out to several clubs since he joined Chelsea in the summer of 2013 he seems to just love it at Newcastle.
He feels he can improve a lot under world-class manager Rafa Benitez and certainly the fans would just love the lad to become a permanent player for Newcastle as soon as possible and maybe in January.
Christian Atsu after scoring first goal on Saturday
Christian showed what he was capable of on Saturday against Cardiff City with a goal after just three minutes which was set up by Aleksandar Mitrovic and his speed and skill down the wing in that first half was difficult to handle by the opposition defense.
Atsu has been interviewed and he says he is grateful to the manager for giving him his chance and that he vows to work hard on Tyneside.
This is what the 24 year-old Ghanaian has said:
“I had a difficult two seasons when I wasn’t playing a lot,” “I’m very grateful to Rafa for giving me this opportunity.”
“I just want to keep working hard and helping the team, and we’ll see what happens.”
“I’m happy. I’m always prepared, so when I get a chance I can take it.”
Atsu has been loaned out to Vitesse, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga while he’s been on the book of Chelsea and he didn’t always get playing time at those clubs.
So far this season he has 11 appearances with two goals for Newcastle and he’s likely to be used a lot more by the manager if keeps putting in displays like he gave on Saturday in front of a packed St. James’ Park.
