Young Winger Returns To Action After Year Out


Newcastle United have posted the following update on young Spanish winger Victor Fernandez who has returned from a hip injury suffered last season to get his first minutes back on the pitch.


Victor had a dreadful time of it last year as two serious injuries kept him out of action for most of the season.

Victor was a highly touted prospect when he joined from Spanish side UE Cornella in the winter of 2017. He had made a lot of appearances for the U23’s prior to last season but still needs a lot of development before he will have a chance in the first team.

This is what the 21-year-old added about his injuries from last season:

“Last season, I was separated from the team, doing my own work in the gym.

“At first, I suffered a heel injury and then after a few training sessions, I had a hip problem and needed surgery, which kept me out for seven to eight months.

“After a year of being out, it feels great.”

“I just need confidence now because it is has been so long since I was on the pitch.

“It was fantastic being able to do what I love again. I can’t wait to get back to playing football properly again.”

Hopefully, he can continue to recover and maybe see some action out on loan at some point this season.

When former U23 manager Peter Beardsley spoke of the youngster prior to last season he had this to say:

“He is a good kid and I don’t want to be negative.

“The more he comes inside he will get tackled. Get one on one and beat your man and get the cross in.

“The end result is all that matters. He is a lovely kid but he has to have an impact on the game.”

The past year will not have helped Victor in his development so it is important for the club to make the proper decisions for him this year to allow him the best opportunities to fulfill his potential.

    High Bridge
    Named after one of two bridges that crossed the Lort Burn, a dirt-filled stream which ran from Castle Leazes down to the River Tyne through the middle of the town. The bridge connected the Bigg Market and Pilgrim Street.

    It’s a road, but not called High Bridge Street as some would have.

    Kenedy – no contribution
    Joselu – no contribution
    Rondon – Joelinton
    Perez – Gayle
    Diame – Colback

    ‘Don’t see a problem here…. Just roll that transfer budget into next season Lee old bean, we wouldn’t want to bloat the squad now would we! HAHAHAHA. ‘

    Colback might get a squad number but that can be given to someone else when he leaves and a new signing arrives.

    Brucie just wants to pretend he’s the park keeper at the boating pond, ‘Come in number x your time is up”

    Never had Amber on draught, although I was never a fan. Always remember a Scottish feller I was in the Army with used to nag me to grab him a crate when I came home on weekends. Do they still make it?

    on a cold and frosty october morning in 1801 . there was a young lad walking the streets . looking at the cobble stones glimmering in the winter sun. kicking his hob nail boots on the cobbles causing sparks, across the road from where the young lad was is a shop with all its lights on lighting up the cobbles , the young lad stands there transfixed with the lights shining on the cobbles , he said to himself ” I WONDER WHATS IN THERE ? ”. as he’s thinking that a elderly gentleman look through his frosted windows see’s the you lad . ” I’VE SEEN THAT LAD EVERYDAY FOR THE PAST MONTH ” . the elderly gentleman looks out of his windows no sign of the young lad, this happens for 4 or 5 days . so the elderly gentleman puts on his winter coat his winter boots , goes looking for the kid finds him shivering freezing cold in a back alley . he picks him up takes him back to his shop , lays him down on the couch in front of the fire gives him a bowl of red hot soup . a week later the kid is better , the elderly gentleman ask the boy his name , he replies sorry sir i dont have a name i just answer to you , the man says ok . next morning the boy’s curiosity gets the better of him . he sneaks down stairs to the shop , the kid stands there taken a back shelves and shelves filled with cheap tat . . so the elderly man says to the kid you can live here and work for me , i’ve decide to call you MICHAEL , you can call me MR ASHLEY . the rest is history …
