‘You See Siem De Jong and You Know He Is Class Straight Away’

7 years ago

Steven Taylor has heralded this summer as a new era for Newcastle United and has picked out Siem De Jong for a special mention.

When describing the impression the Dutch midfielder has made on him, Taylor said, “You see Siem De Jong and you know he is class straight away.”

Steven Taylor admits that Newcastle suffered when Yohan Cabaye left and that Newcastle had to bring in reinforcements.

However, he claims that the influx of new signings this summer has lifted everybody associated with Newcastle United.

Speaking to the Northern Echo, Steven Taylor had this to say;

“You’re seeing the start of a new era at Newcastle…and I have seen a few eras over the years.

“It’s a new start with great signings and you can sense the fans are getting very excited as well, the new players have given a lift to the whole city.

“We knew that when Yohan Cabaye left, that the gaffer would have to bring in some new signings and it has happened now.

“I am really excited about some of the new players – you see Siem De Jong and you know he is class straight away. If you give him the ball, he will hurt you.

“He gets the ball under control easily and has a look around, which is the sign of a good player. He’s got all the touches and sees passes which others don’t, we obviously missed that a bit last season when Yohan left.”
