Hiddink – ‘Newcastle Fancy The Final In Amsterdam’
Hiddink thinks Newcastle are a step up on their previous opponents in the Europa League;
“When you see that last game against Swansea, they were dominating, dominating, dominating and they got a very unlucky goal in the last part of the match against them. You could see though it is a modern team, so it is a big challenge for our team.
In my opinion Newcastle are a stronger team (than Anzhi’s last opponents Hannover), first because they play in the Premier League, which looks stronger than the Bundesliga.
Also, they have had good improvement in their results and have high quality national team players in their line-up.
They have powerful and skilful players in all positions, such as Moussa Sissoko, and I’m sure they want to be in that final in Amsterdam in May”.
A massive challenge for Newcastle, especially with Cisse not travelling, but confidence must be high after the recent performances.
If the players believe in themselves as much as the opposing manager appears to, then we won’t go far wrong.
