Newcastle Youngster – Would Be A Dream To Be Managed By Rafa Benitez


Elias Sorensen has scored eight goals this season for the Newcastle reserve side, and he scored the second goal last night in the 2-0 win over Notts County at Meadow Lane in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Newcastle signed the Danish youngster to some fanfare when he was 16 three years ago in 2015, and it looks like he’s coming through well under Newcastle’s new reserve team coach Ben Dawson.

We’ve had Peter Lovenkrands play for us from Denmark and also Jon Dahl Tomasson who was sold to Feyenoord after only one season at Newcastle when he was just 19-years-old.

Rafa Benitez

But Tomasson went onto success and played 112 times for Denmark with 52 goals and played at AC Milan for three seasons.

Sorensen has said this in the Chronicle today:

“Jon Dahl Tomasson is one I know about from Denmark because of the Newcastle link but it’s one I have had to look at the clips online as it was before my time really.”

“The player that I really looked up to when I was a kid was Fernando Torres at Liverpool. I thought he was unbelievable.”

“It’s a massive thing to be at a club where Rafa Benitez is. He is a big-name manager and he has won the Champions League.”

“It would be the dream to be managed by him.”

 “I’m very happy to get that goal because at 1-0 up I think we were a bit shaky and with the scoreline like that anything can happen.

“Scoring that second goal just killed it off.”

“We knew that this would be a different game to Doncaster because they like to play football and play out from the back.”

“Notts County like to lump the ball long but we prepared very well for it.” “It was tough but we got the win.”

“You can tell in the Checkatrade Trophy that the teams are much more professional. They’re much bigger lads and I was struggling myself to hold the ball up at times.”

“You can see they just like to kick the ball long and try to win the second ball then play from there. It’s very tough.”

“It was massive for us to see the game through. We took our time from throw-ins and managed the game.”

“If they’d have been 2-0 up they’d have done the same to us.”

Let’s hope Elias can get his wish and he’s managed by Rafa Benitez.

That would mean that Elias makes it to the Newcastle first team squad and Rafa stays at Newcastle past next summer.

Comments welcome.

    I think I’d prefer Schaar over Manquillo, was pretty good in the recent Internationals for Switzerland and would probably be comfortable anywhere across the back line. he’s just awaiting the chance to show what he can do as Fernandez (older one) has done.

    Have to say I was never impressed with Tomasson even when he was playing regularly with Inter Milan or Denmark, in a good team he looked OK but never better than OK. I don’t think he’d have made it in England at any age.

    If the kids even half decent he will be sold at the first opportunity
    We won’t ever have a good team when our owner sells at the first opportunity and almost never even relaces them let alone actually spending the money recived on the team

    We haven’t spent the money from Carrol yet ffs

    If you look back at the last 11 years
    We have spent to get promotion
    Or bought players who were perceived to be ones we’ll make a profit on

    It’s all about adverts and money

    Not once has it been about football

    Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) affects one’s ability to process information
    and interferes with mind function. It is often described as though the mind is stuck
    on “repeat” or on a loop with one constantly recurring thought or urge.
    It can also be called Palilalia from the Greek pálin meaning “again” and
    laliá meaning ” “to talk”, a it is a language disorder characterized by the
    involuntary repetition of phrases.

    Who could have that I wonder ?

    Bill, it’s a great thing to have so many young Geordies on the books. It can’t hurt the atmosphere in the dressing room to be all pulling in the same direction from a common starting point. It will help the other lads in there to really understand the club too and help them settle into the city.

    Spot on. Palilalia is a symptom of autism. I did mention a week or so ago that he definitely exhibits autistic traits. I think he has Asperger’s Syndrome, which is a low grade autism. His behaviour is classic Asperger’s with quite a strong OCD element.

    “Bullshit Syndrome is a condition in which people will blatantly put forward imaginary events and present them as facts. This can take many forms, from simple lies like being the main Scandanavian satellite dish supplier to Western Europe or elaborate tales of having once visited St James Park in Newcastle”

    Unbelievably after the shit that went down in Genoa
    earlier this year. I actually knew the taxi driver Juan
    who was killed in San Llorenc in Mallorca in floods
    the other day – he had 2 Brit passengers who were
    killed also.

    That’s exactly what he does and will continue to do so until he’s either forced out or drops dead.

    We exist solely to promote his one true love. But in the meantime he’s bled us dry once realisation set in that he could move club assets around like the crest, TM, strawberry place, club shop, merchandise ect ect.

    I just want to point out that today is World Mental Health Day.

    It is not a subject for fun. 1 in 4 people suffer from mental health conditions so all joking aside there are probably people on this blog who suffer, blandly saying someone has mental health problems could actually be doing them harm.

    Not trying to preach, but sometimes people do go over the top even if they don’t actually mean it.
