Yoshinori Muto has looked good when we have seen him, and it was great that in his first start last Saturday he scored his first goal for the club after 10 minutes.
That put us 2-0 up, and the Japanese International could have had a third goal in the first half with a header, which he sent straight at the goalkeeper.
It’s now history we conceded three goals in the last 20 minutes to lose our sixth league game out of the first eight played this season.
Yoshinori Muto – his first goal for Newcastle
Muto seemed happy enough to get his first goal for the club, and hopefully, there are a lot more to come.
This is what Muto said after the game at Old Trafford:
“I was simply glad to score.” “Scoring a goal is the best pleasure for a centre-forward.”
“I hope that goal has made my position stronger.” “I should have scored another goal with a chance like that.
“That was the worst possible result for us.” “But we have to stay focused on the future.”
“I would like to build my future from the goal at Man United.”
“If I had missed this chance (to start), I couldn’t see when the next chance could come.”
“So, I was really focused on grabbing a good result.”
“I was confident that I could start then my motivation would be sky-high because we were against very strong opponents.”
“As a result, scoring a goal against them has given me more confidence.”
“Instinctively, I focused more on power than control which gave me a better result.”
“Even though the ball went near the keeper, the speed gave me more of an advantage.”
“To be honest, it is only two months since I arrived.”
“Of course, I am not fluent yet, but I managed to get a good grasp of German after living in Germany.”
“So I believe I can improve my English quite quickly.
“Now, I am having a personal lesson every week and trying hard to improve my English.”
Muto’s goal was great to watch and he really made the goal out of nothing.
He looks sharp, skillful and quick and he works his socks off for the team – and he has an upbeat character.
Now we know why Rafa wanted him at Newcastle.
Hopefully, he can get at least 10 goals for us this season – if he can do that we could have an excellent player on the books.
