Returning Newcastle Star ‘What You Get Pre-Season – You Just Can’t Buy That’

7 years ago

It will be a truly remarkable achievement if Ryan Taylor makes it back into the first team picture in the coming season.

Having suffered that serious cruciate injury against Atromitos almost two years ago, and then to break down just as he was on his way back, it would have finished off less men.

However, speaking to the official club website, Taylor has emphasised just how important he sees the coming pre-season, not just in his extreme circumstances but for every player.

“What you get pre-season, you just can’t buy that. You are looking to get as fit and strong as you can, if you miss that you are forever playing catch up and it shows.

“If you miss pre-season you are playing catch up with the first team because your fitness isn’t the same.

“I’ve got great people around me and the good thing is that the gym doesn’t actually look onto the training field, which is kind of a good thing because otherwise I would probably spend half the day watching training.

They (Newcastle players) can see the work that I have put in, in at least the last 6 to 8 months, when I have had the new cruciate put in.

“I want to try and thank everyone for what they have done in the last 2 years and how supportive everyone has been.”

Good luck to Ryan Taylor and fingers crossed he is seen on a football pitch sometime soon.
