Newcastle Manager Rates His Strikers
Alan Pardew was spreading the praise after the match today against Tottenham.
While Tim Krul was easily man of the match, the Newcastle manager was keen to talk about his strikers.
Loic Remy has the goal and the ‘silkiness’ but Alan Pardew believes Shola played an equally important role today.
“He scores goals and because the centre-halves of Tottenham play high there is going to be chances in behind.
“He had a a chance just before and I thought he should have scored then but he took the second one really well, which gave us a platform to win the game.
He’s got a silkiness in the way he moves, the way he runs, he really is a classy performer, which is great if you back it up with goals.
It kind of elevates him and makes him stand out but I thought Shola Ameobi was terrific in the sixty minutes that he played, he was as important as Loic I thought.”
