Return of Newcastle star put back to January

6 years ago

A player that seems to have been forgotten about with all the ups and downs so far this season, is Davide Santon.

The player himself recently said that he hoped to be back soon and his recovery was going well.

However, Alan Pardew has revealed that they always thought the recuperation could take longer than originally forecast.

“Davide (Santon) has not been forgotten by us, we know we have got an outstanding talent there, he’s on the way back and has done some lengthy strides.

“By the start of January I expect to see Davide in and around the team.”

Expected the worst;

“When the surgeon went in we always expected that it would be a little bit worse than we expected. I don’t think it’s career threatening or anything like that – he’s fine.

“However, the rehab was always likely to take a bit longer than we thought. “

Santon is a player who divides fans but I think two things are certain about him.

He definitely has talent but the other part of the equation is that it is very hard to confident of where his best position in the team really is.

The manager who can nail this question could/would have some player on their hands.
