On Trial Starlet Not Impressed By NUFC

9 years ago

A promising teenage Swedish prospect has spoken about his experience at St.James’ Park and wasn’t impressed.

Erik Andersson of Landskrona, has spent time on trial at both Juventus and Newcastle United, this is what he had to say via Sky Sports about both clubs as the fifteen year old confirmed he would continue his football back in Sweden for the time being.

“I have had a very good season, I believe I will progress more if I stay at home.

They (Newcastle) didn’t talk to me, it was a bit strange.

It was much more fun at Juventus, with better football and nicer players”.

Not the best ever advert for our football club and hardly likely to encourage anybody else who Newcastle approach.

Whether this is any reflection on our youth recruitment policy, a reflection on the current mood at St.James’ Park, or just a stroppy Swedish kid who didn’t like the Tyneside air – is anybody’s guess, but like you I hate to hear any negativity about our football club.
