Shola New Contract – “Never Say Never”

8 years ago

A Shola new contract could prove reality after the forward scored his second goal in successive home matches.

Following the win against Cardiff, Ameobi admitted that Saturday had followed his ‘perfect script’ but when musing on where he’ll be next season, Shola said ‘never say never’ in reference to the possibility of adding to his fourteen years at St.James’ Park.

“I never say never because I don’t know what’s going to happen next season, but it has been a fantastic fourteen years for me here, I’ve loved every minute.

“We have had our fair share of ups and downs over the years but in the main I have been overwhelmed by the support and everything that’s come with playing for Newcastle United.

“When I was thinking about the game this morning that was the perfect script that I had in my mind.

“Professional pride kicks in when you cross that white line because you want to win.

“It was important to show our character and that we are still fighting for every point – that we aren’t on our holidays and still want to win matches.”
