Shola – “I Promise From Now On To Always Give My Best To The Team”

8 years ago

Shola Ameobi is back in the Nigerian camp after missing out on the African Cup of Nations when Newcastle insisted he stayed on Tyneside after Demba Ba jumped ship.

The Super Eagles are in Durban where they will play South Africa in a friendly match on Wednesday night.

I loved this description of Shola’s arrival to join the Nigerian squad at their hotel;

‘By lunchtime bulky Newcastle United striker, Shola Ameobi, strolled in along with stand in skipper, Austin Ejide.’

This report in Nigerian publication the Daily Trust, also quoted Shola as saying;

“I am so happy to be back with this set of players who always show me love and care and I promise from now on to always give my best to the team.”

As it stands now, unfortunately it looks very likely that Newcastle also could still be relying on Shola to promise to give his best from now on in the Premier League.
