Gouffran ‘It Is All About The Team Spirit’

8 years ago

A player who epitomises the change in attitude and energy in the last two matches is new signing, Yoan Gouffran.

Despite not scoring himself, his clever link up play and unselfish running look very likely to make him a big hit with the fans.

This is what Gouffran (11/1 To Score First) had to say in advance of the match at White Hart Lane;

“It isn’t going to be an easy game (Spurs) but you can sense the spirit in the dressing room.

We feel we can pull it off as we have the same dynamic and spirit (as against Chelsea) – it is all about the team spirit.

There aren’t any big egos at the club, we’re all on the same wavelength and the most important thing is to fight for each other.

Before I took up the Newcastle shirt I said I’d give 100% and there’s no time to think twice – I have to make sure that everything I do is towards scoring a goal”.

Playing in a more withdrawn role, with Cisse and Sissoko getting the lion’s share of the chances so far, I still don’t think we’ll have to wait long for one from Gouffran. When he does get that goal I’ve a feeling he might enjoy his celebration and with a scoring record of 22 in his last year and a half in France shows he’s no mug in front of goal.

Nice to have these new signings who talk about having the right attitude but ALSO show it on the pitch.

Gouffran To Score First Goal 11/1
