Alan Pardew Claims He’s Found The New Teddy Sheringham
Alan Pardew has claimed that he’s found the new Teddy Sheringham, a player who played under him at West Ham when in the twilight of his career.
The Newcastle manager stating that, “Siem is a player that I love…I have had two players of that type – Teddy Sheringham and Yossi Benayoun.”
Speaking to the Shields Gazette, Alan Pardew had this to say;
“Siem is a player that I love, I love that type of player.
“I have had two players of that type at West Ham; Teddy Sheringham and Yossi Benayoun.
“They can make the game stand still and create time for the team.
“He is an important player for us and we hope he stays fit…”
Unfortunate timing with these quotes being released this morning, as Siem De Jong was one of four players forced to come off through injury as [intlink id=”45325″ type=”post”]Newcastle beat Wellington Phoenix 1-0 on Saturday nigh[/intlink]t in New Zealand – kicking off at 5.45am UK time.
While Abeid has said that his knock is nothing serious, both Coloccini and Rolando Aarons didn’t look happy when they had to come off.
While in Siem De Jong’s case, the midfielder/striker had to sit out training and then couldn’t continue longer than the opening 33 minutes as he was replaced by Ayoze Perez.
Fingers crossed that De Jong in particular proves ok, as he looks like he is going to be instrumental in United’s forward play this coming season.
After an injury interrupted 2013/14 at Ajax, the last thing the player will need is that pattern continuing, although this latest problem is believed to be unrelated to what led to him missing matches last season in Holland.
