Newcastle Signing Ayoze Perez Gives First Interview

8 years ago

Newcastle United’s first signing in eighteen months, Ayoze Perez, has given his first interview since [intlink id=”43643″ type=”post”]signing on at St.James\’ Park[/intlink].

Perez references, the club, the stadium, the fans, plus how he sees himself as a player, when interviewed for NUFC’s official TV channel.

Watch out for the killer question at the end…

“It wasn’t a difficult decision, there were many clubs interested in me, but this was the most serious one.

“The one that has treated me the best and valued me the most.

“Any player would want to come to play for such a magnificent club as Newcastle United. I am eager to start playing and I believe I can grow at Newcastle.

“I know about the history of some of the players, especially Alan Shearer. I have always been interested in English football and I think Newcastle is a very great club.

“St.James’ Park is awesome, I cannot imagine what it will be like with fifty two thousand fans in it, what the atmosphere will be like.”

Asked to describe himself as a player;

“I am very [intlink id=”43658″ type=”post”]willing and eager, skilful and great mobility[/intlink].”

A great question to finish off with…

‘Why do you have the name Ayoze on the back of your shirt, are you proud of your name?’

“Yes I’ve always been proud of my name and in Spain it is more common to have your first name, rather than your surname, on the back of your shirt.”
