Sammy Ameobi Wants To Do One Last Thing At Newcastle

It was another good move by Rafa Benitez to bring back two local lads from their loan spells to augment the Newcastle squad, especially when the hierarchy failed to bring in the two new players Rafa asked for in January.

Having Sammy Ameobi and Jamie Sterry back means the Newcastle-born players will go all out to help the club be promoted this season and as Rafa has said – we can all be heroes if we get Newcastle back to the Premier League this season.

He’s right there.

Sammy Ameobi – in action for Newcastle

Sammy has shown a new maturity and positive attitude since returning from his successful loan spell at Bolton Wanderers and he has explained what his attitude is for what could be his last few months as a Newcastle player.

This is what he said in the Matchday program on Saturday::

“I’m working hard every day to hopefully impress the manager.” “If he feels I’m good enough, then that’s awesome.”  “If not, I can move on with my head held high.”

“I’ve done everything I can. “But that’s still to be seen. “I want the club to get promoted.”

“This is the club I support, and I want to do everything I can to help that happen.”

“I want to play my part, work hard whenever I’m called upon, if I’m called upon, and hopefully do everything I can to help the team and not just myself, essentially.”

“I just want to fit in and show that I’m good enough to be able to play at this level. “I want to feel comfortable with the quality we’ve got.”

“We’ve got some amazing players here.” “Coming back, it’s been a bit of a transition, but I’ve really enjoyed it. “

“Hopefully, I can settle in even more here.”

“No matter where I’m going to be in the future – I have no idea what my future holds – I know that I’m in the right hands.”  

“I know that I’ve been given a gift and I’m going to use it”. “I’m just going to enjoy what I do.”

More good words from Sammy there.

The 24 year-old has been frank and honest about his situation since he returned to Tyneside and there’s no doubt the lad is a talented player and the fans are hoping he can contribute to the promotion push, which is about to get very intense.

Certainly he’s shown he still has the skill and could certainly help us get promoted as can Jamie Sterry – and that would be great for the two local lads.

Howay The Lads!!

    sounds like hes all but given up in a career with newcastle. wants to only enjoy but not pushing himself for a real claim. working hard shld be the basic for people who are paid tens and thousands of weeks. got potential, not hungry enough. pity..

    Yup talented as Sammy is he is never going to be the player we all know he could be. As breadman says he ain’t hungry enough, just like his older brother. For a player with so much pace he hardly uses it and doesn’t fight hard enough in games, another lazy player which we don’t need. It’s a shame as I had high hopes for the lad especially knowing he is the more talented of his siblings.
