Newcastle midfielder tells banned paper to stop making up stories about him

6 years ago

Newcastle midfielder Vurnon Anita has used social media to hit back at press reports, which claim he has informed Newcastle United he is unhappy at being left out of the team and then told to ‘knuckle down’ by the club.

The Dutch international seemingly reacting to a story ran by the Chronicle this morning claiming inside knowledge as to what had allegedly transpired between player and club.

The Chronicle story had produced a large number of negative comments aimed at the player, after they claimed he’d kicked off with the club.

‘Vurnon Anita has been told to knuckle down and work hard if he wants to win his first-team place back at Newcastle United.

The Chronicle understands that Anita was unhappy after being left out of recent wins against Manchester City and Liverpool, and communicated his feelings to the club about the subject.

However, like all United players, Anita must now earn the right for a place in the side.’

Anita replying via Twitter;

“Stop making up story’s!! let’s keep on winning #NUFC’
