New Signing Will Give ‘300%’

8 years ago

Further proof of the type of players Newcastle are recruiting, in terms of character as well as ability, is coming from the clubs they are leaving.

The latest is Frank de Boer commenting on Vurnon Anita  in this interview in the Chronicle, the newspaper also reporting that following yesterday’s medical there are still ‘one or two matters need to be tied up’.

Ajax Manager Frank De Boer;

“Of course he goes to Newcastle United with my best wishes. He is one of the hardest working young players I have ever seen. He deserves a move to a club like Newcastle United.

For me he gave everything during his time here. As I say, he gives everything for you. He never complained once to me about having to drop back into another position.

In training he works like he is playing a game and that it means everything. In the one and half years I worked with him he did not stop working. That is what has resulted in his transfer to Newcastle.”

Newcastle fans will see a player who can deal with the game in England. He gives 300% for you. He is always concentrating on his game and he never ever gives up. He has a bright future ahead.”

It is a great move by Newcastle United, and they are a great club and have a good team. They are one of the biggest clubs in England and Vurnon can be very proud of the move”.

I remember similar remarks after the likes of Cabaye and Cisse left their respective clubs and a refreshing change from the regular scenario of a war of words between players and their previous clubs.
