Siem De Jong ‘I Have A Feeling Alan Pardew Is An Honest Trainer’
After signing on the dotted line for Newcastle United, Siem De Jong was keen to say that the club’s long-term interest in him was a key factor in deciding to move to Tyneside.
Another big positive for the now former Ajax midfielder was that Alan Pardew is still in position at St.James’ Park, the Dutch international saying he has a feeling that, “Alan Pardew is an honest trainer.”
“The last three years we talked to Newcastle, that was important (Newcastle’s longstanding interest), it was also good for me that the manager is still here.
“I spoke to him (Alan Pardew) once and Luuk also told me all about him, plus he spoke to our manager a couple of times.
“I have a feeling he is an honest trainer and I hope we have a good couple of years.
“Luuk has said that Newcastle is a great club, a great atmosphere in a great stadium.
“He said it is a big club in the world and he hopes that one day he comes back, maybe with me, so we will see.”
