After a full season playing in the English Premier League DeAndre Andre is just one of the players who have improved this season under the guidance of Rafa Benitez.
Yedlin has become a better defensive full-back but as Rafa would say – there’s still room for improvement.
Newcastle rocketed to safety with four successive wins, but we have narrowly lost both of our last two games 1-0 at Everton and at home to West Brom.
Yedlin now thinks it’s important for Newcastle to finish this season on a hight and we need to start winning some games again.
DeAndre Yedlin – wants a good end to the season
American right back DeAndre has talked about things in the Chronicle today:
“If you had said to a lot of people before Christmas ‘Hopefully we’ll be safe with a month to go’ they would have said you were crazy.”
“But to be in this position, you have to give a lot of credit to the players, credit to the staff and the fans for not turning on us. They stuck by us, they were positive and kept us going and ultimately, it’s paid off.”
“That’s the name of the game (small margins) – especially at this level, it’s not massive things.”
“It’s tiny little differences that you make in your game, that have allowed us to start getting these results and getting points up on the board and getting to this position in the table.”
“We’ve achieved our goal – 40 points – but we want to keep pushing now and we don’t want to end a good season on a sour note.”
We play at Watford on Saturday afternoon, and a win in that game would all but guarantee us 10th place in the League table.
We need to do well in these final three games and who knows Rafa may sign a new contract too.
