NUFC No.9 Video Great – Sir Les

12 years ago

The ‘Geordie Nation’ was in despair, Kevin Keegan had sold Andy Cole months earlier and after missing out on Europe, some were doubting the manager.

Step forward one of Newcastle’s classiest ever signings, a great character both on and off the pitch.

A massive part of the team that came so close to winning the Premier League in 1996, Les Ferdinand then formed a formidable partnership with Alan Shearer that tragically only lasted twelve months but which brought 49 goals in a season between them.

Everybodywill have their own favourite but for many the 5-0 against Manchester United will be the stand-out game for both Sir Les and his team mates.

We bring you another of the all time great Newcastle United number nines in our series featuring those who have worn the famous shirt.

We bring you this classic video action courtesy of The Mag’s YouTube channel, the Sir Leslie Ferdinand Newcastle United goal collection.
