Tino In Newcastle Return…

9 years ago

I know history tells us never to say never with Newcastle United but…

A story doing the rounds at the minute suggests that Tino Asprilla could be coming back to St.James’ Park in a ‘coaching’ role after the ex-toon striker said the following;

“A year ago I spoke with Newcastle’s owners about bringing over players from my coaching school in Columbia; it didn’t happen due to some requirements of the English league but then, during informal meetings with fans, I said I’d be interested in returning.

That encouraged the owners and three months ago they invited me over.

I’m motivated and like the city. I often accompany the team when they are travelling in Europe.

It is a significant opportunity and hopefully something will materialise”.

Well, we loved Tino because he was a right character…and it looks like nothing has changed!

I wonder if the ‘Informal meeting with fans’ was in Julie’s?!!! (NB For the uninitiated, Julie’s was the preferred nightclub for Newcastle players back in the day…)
