Newcastle’s forgotten man training 3 times a day after 7 months out

6 years ago

With Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett fighting it out for the left-back shirt, Davide Santon has almost become Newcastle United’s forgotten man.

The talented Italian international saw his form tail off before suffering a serious knee injury earlier this year but his return would undoubtedly be a plus for the team and the squad overall.

Santon is training three times a day from seven in the morning, as he tries to get back into action.

The Italian says that he has been inspired by Ryan Taylor’s return after over two years out but is not putting an exact timescale on his own return to first team action.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Davide Santon said;

“I’m training three times a day, every day. I start seven o’clock in the morning and finish around three or four o’clock in the afternoon.

“It is hard but because I have been out for a long time, I have to see how I feel with my knee, get used to the pitch again.

“I cant’s say (for my return) three weeks, one month, two weeks, I don’t know.”

Ryan Taylor an inspiration;

“I was happy for him (Ryan Taylor), especially when he was like a keeper (v Manchester City) at the end of the game, when he stopped that ball on the line.

“After two years he came back on the pitch and gets the biggest victory.”

Team and manager amazing;

“We are playing amazing and the manager is doing amazing as well, because only one month ago we were in a relegation position.

“Now we are playing as a group and working together, that is the key.”
