Aleksandar Mitrovic has confirmed that he is set to finally leave Newcastle United.

The striker has given an interview to Serbian media, saying how he has ‘patiently waited for the chance in recent months’ to play, but that with not a single Premier League start ‘it’s time for me to look out more for myself’.

The striker declares ‘I’m sorry, as after all I love Newcastle..”

Aleksandar Mitrovic was said to have a small back injury that was keeping him out of games until January.

Many Newcastle fans guessing this was simply to cut short the debate about whether he should be playing before a departure in January.

Mitro appearing to confirm that, as rather than having any injury problems, he states ‘I have never felt better. I’m physically in flawless form, I cannot wait to play’.

A solution does really have to be found as soon as possible, for Aleksandar Mitrovic to get on with his career elsewhere, and Rafa Benitez allowed to go out and bring in a strike rhe does want to play.

Aleksandar Mitrovic talking to Zurnal in Serbia:

“I patiently waited for the chance in recent months and I did not welcome it (not being given any starts in the Premier League).

“I’m sorry, as after all I love Newcastle, but…it’s time for me to look out more for myself, to find the best solution for my career.”

‘Do you feel a little tired?’

“No, on the contrary, I have never felt better,

“I’m physically in flawless form, I cannot wait to play.

“The most important thing is to find a club and finally get a chance on the pitch. I have not forgotten football, nor how to score goals. I earned much more (at Newcastle) but …

 “I do not have much to look back on (and regret).

“I tried to be honest with myself and my teammates in every training sessionand match.

“And the fact that I did not get a chance is simply not down to me. Everyone knows that I was left in the dark.”

‘Do you know which club you will be with in January?’

“Not for now. There is no concrete offer.”

‘Do you stay in England?’

“I do not have a special desire (preference), the chances are I will leave (England).”

Is there a chance to return to Partizan?

“No, it’s an unrealistic story ..

“I think my arrival would be an expensive investment for Partizan. Totally unrealistic at this time.

“For my price, black and whites (Partizan) could cover reinforcements in several positions … For now that’s the situation, but you never know!”

    time the manager stopped telling porkies & not just about the Mitro situation either

  • Leazes Ender

    Told you all for the last two months….’why isn’t he being played’ ‘Mitrovic must start’….. obvious wasn’t it?

        • Wor Lass

          I`m going to watch it in a pub that I`ve only been in twice before, both times to watch the lads. The good news is we`ve got a 100% record. The bad news is it was Sheff Wed away last season and Brighton away this season. I`m hoping we buck the trend!

          • Wor Lass

            If we lose again tonight the that pub`ss going to be lucky to ever see me in it again. As Goldfinger put it, “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.”

  • Wor Lass

    It`s a shame, in my opinion, but Rafa`s just not going to play him so he needs to go quickly. We`ll never know what he might have done with a prolonged run. That`s partly down to his own stupidity, partly to the style of play at the club and partly to Rafa writing him off.

  • TheNutJob

    Pep`s just been on the telly, bad news he`s told his lads to keep the intensity going with or without the ball.

    • Wor Lass

      I hope he was talking about their bing-drinking.

      • TheNutJob

        did you see Moose has them 6-0 at 50/1
        😂😂😂

        • Wor Lass

          That`s us totally knacked, then, if he`s saying we`ll win!

          • TheNutJob

            No, no, no. Citee, what a snide

          • Wor Lass

            Phew! It`ll serve him right if they`re 6-0 up with a minute to go and Joselu scores with a 30yd screamer.

    • TheNutJob

      i gather you`re upset, he was never injured

      • Mitros gotta start

        Nah just disgusted that we have another manager at the club that treats the fans like mugs just as bad as the owner…..yet some on here think he is the 2nd coming of chr1st.

        • TheNutJob

          i like managers who say it as it is

          • hetonmag

            Go and support West Bromwich then.

        • hetonmag

          So you would rather believe a player that’s got the hump against the manager, is it because you want to believe the player because you simply dislike the manager, pathetic.👎👎👎👎👎

          • TheNutJob

            you`re the one who`s pathetic if you believe for 1 second that he`s injured, he
            who do i believe, the player, as it`s his body not Rafa`s

          • hetonmag

            Well you can join the pathetic ignoramus above with views like yours, do you really think the player is going to tell the football world he has a slight back injury how’s that going to get him a move. Idiot.

          • Mitros gotta start

            Ashley lambias charnley rafa
            Same liars different accents….fact

          • hetonmag

            Rafa isn’t a liar Dumbo and to class him with them Muppets you quote is scandalous.

          • Mitros gotta start

            Here come the gibbering mong sheep blindly defending a manager even when faced with overwhelming evidence that prove he is in fact a spanish ashley chequebook manager found out to be in fact a very poor manager when tasked with the job of actually having to manage…..and turns out he is a bigger liar than the fat pig himself…..please mr gold….make the fat pig an offer he cant refuse and take this clown off our hands….lying pr1ck that he is.

          • KRS1

            could your new years resolution be to stop being such a moron?

          • Mitros gotta start

            As long as yours is to stop being a sheep

  • Chris

    I don’t think he’s been given a fair chance…
    Granted he has a screw loose but I like his attitude and intensity. He’s also shown good ability with Serbia.

  • GToon

    What a shame. He’s a young player who I think a manager of Rafa’s caliber could have worked with and improved. He is different to Gayle, Perez and Joselu and yet he has never really had a run in the team. Don’t understand this one. Maybe in years to come we will find out why like when Gordon Lee sold Supermac. Good luck Mitro and thanks for the goal against the mackems if nowt else!

  • Nicholas Dryden

    It’s funny these characters who think they could do and know better than a triple European trophy winning coach with this championship standard squad. They must be gutted we haven’t got Pulis, Allardyce, pardew or Moyes who’ve never won a thing between them.

    • Mitros gotta start

      Rafa the liar….has anyone checked if he actually won a european cup or are we just taking his word for it?

      • Virsino

        You sir, are an idiot! Happy holidays. :)

        • Mike Adam

          And so are you sir!

      • wheyayeman

        Sit down you’re drunk

    • fistsofsteel2

      Rafa has lost whatever ability he had – along with the plot. He’s a man riding on his former reputation and long past glories. Still if he can still con a decent salary out of a desperate club like Newcastle…..good luck to him.

      • Geordiegiants

        Enjoy league 1 😂🤣😂🤣

  • glassjawsh-got-banned

    As much as I trust and admire Rafa, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look back on this Mitro nonsense without thinking he got absolutely shafted. Will also be a cult hero, at least in my eyes.

    • Geordiegiants

      Your a left wing extremist your view counts for nothing. People on here find middle ground not a one way view and everyone else is wrong.

      • glassjawsh-got-banned

        calling a racist comment a racist comment is not “extremist”. But my sincerest apologies that because of “immigrants from backwards countries” the blood of the people of England is not as pure as you’d like it to be.

        • Geordiegiants

          Your a radical left wing extremist. I can say what I like and it can be debated, but don’t call me a racist for having an opinion. On the issue are you trying to say our country doesn’t let in lunatics from backward countries?
          I never said anything about pure blood, this is what you left wing radical extremist do, shape a conversation to sound how you want it to, and all the PC brigade jump in with any slight comment is racist. This is why there is such a growing arm of the extreme right wing, because people in the middle are accused of racism for not being left, you and your ideology will never work the same as the rights wont, so give your head a shake.

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            your “opinion” is racist. either change it or get used to it being called what it is…

          • Geordiegiants

            Where was race mentioned in my post? How can you not answer my question?
            Your are a radical extremist!

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            “race” doesn’t need to be explicitly mentioned for a comment to be termed “racist”. Binning an entire group of people as “backwards” because of where they are from and what they believe in IS a “racist” “opinion”. I am tempted to believe you don’t know what either “racist” or “radical extremist” actually mean. This and you are becoming tedious.

          • Geordiegiants

            No! you don’t know what your talking about, race means race, it’s got nothing to do with a religion or a general area or anything else but race, the clue is in the word, it’s “race”, do you know what a race is?
            You are an extremist because it’s your way or no way. Your are radical because no matter what is said or explained you will never hear or see anyone else’s side.
            Again you are a left wing radical extremist.

          • Dillon Tovak

            You’re doing exactly what you’re accusing him of.

          • Geordiegiants

            I’m defending freedom of speech, not hatred or racism just freedom of speech. People like him or anyone that twist anything that a hard line left wing extremist says, is why the far right are making a huge rise in this country, not because people are racist. It’s because PC has gone stupid and a comment is construed as racist when not a single race was mentioned. I am very middle of the road and have a multi race family as it goes. I didn’t want to mention this to the left wing extremist and feel it’s people like him that cause this sort of friction. Far left folk like our friend is just as ridiculous as his counter parts on the right. This is about a comment “lunatics from backward countries”.
            Does this country not let in lunatics from backward countries?
            It’s a yes or no answer? It’s not about any other scenario as it could go on for ever. Was my statement true or false?

          • think think

            Why do you need to tell them or call them as lunatics lol..that’s my question??. They are not coming into our country to be a lunatic lol

          • Geordiegiants

            Call who?

          • Mike Adam

            Let the Mitro think go, he will never play for the club again, you should be happy little lamb. Just go on defending the MESSIAH as he does no wrong. That is what you do best!

          • Dillon Tovak

            You sound like a backwards lunatic!

          • relax

            Lunatics from backward countries?? That’s a strong language brother.. You need to remember your vernacular lol..This somewhat portrays you as what u say u r not..A person in the middle ground is rational and sensible and don’t forget tolerant too

          • Mike Adam

            You are just a simple little lamb who hates Mitro, completely insignificant.

  • Damon Horner

    He could be a good player for someone, just not a Rafa Benitez side, nobody knows what’s really going on there between manager and player or even if it’s the end just yet.

    At the end of the day though, If Rafa is as critical to the takeover as believed then I’ll back him over Mitrovic if it rids us of Ashley.

    Shame though, Mitro seems to love the club and seems the type who could have been a crowd favourite if he scored more and calmed down a tad.

    Good luck Mitro.

  • Geordiegiants

    Thank f for that!

    • Damon Horner

      I think he will regret this interview. Not sure which club will fork out fee and wages for his output in terms of goals when he is also happy to contradict his club.

      • Mitros gotta start

        A 23 year old that scores 1 goal for every 2 starts will have no takers at all…….clown

        • Damon Horner

          In Belgium mate. Perspective. By that logic Sels is a top goalkeeper.

        • wheyayeman

          Sorry dude you’re just going to have to change your username. Unless of course he doesn’t really play at his next club either

      • fistsofsteel2

        Goals per mins played ratio is very good.

        So your comment is completely silly.

        • Geordiegiants

          Enjoy league 1 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

          • Damon Horner

            his record at PL level is around 1 in 4, wouldn’t say it’s very good.. didn’t deserve a response but yours was adequate!

          • Geordiegiants

            Without sounding like the great Clarko, I think his overall is 16 goals in 70 odd apps.

          • Mike Adam

            Who will you hate when Mitro is gone you blind little lamb????

          • Geordiegiants

            I do not hate Mitro, quite the opposite to be honest, he is full of passion and enthusiasm for our club and city, it just shame he is a donkey.

      • HarryHype59

        He is reputedly on £60k a week! Shifting him isn’t going to be easy!

  • hetonmag

    How the hell can he be called a cult hero is it because he punches his chest, don’t know what his fan club on here will talk about when he’s gone.

  • nufcslf

    Good luck to him and hope he does become a top goal scorer elsewhere. Not given a chance by Rafa, some of it self inflicted and some of unfair. Silly cards might be his downfall where ever he ends up all the same.

    • fistsofsteel2

      So why is Shelvey playing?

  • wheyayeman

    Appreciate Mitro’s heart and at times he has shown flashes of the player he can be. He probably hasn’t had a fair crack at it since Rafa came in but we don’t know the reasons for that apart from his discipline issues and speculation is fruitless. Rafa has his reasons and he’s the Gaffa. Mitro’s divided opinion but ultimately we wish him well. Cheers Mitro for the good times!

  • fistsofsteel2

    Aside from the absolutely woeful player management, and the terrible treatment of Mitro by Rafa, it is also a display of shocking business naivete.

    Rafa has to go. His pig headed attitude is not only costing the club points, but also money, and risking our premiership survival.

    Rafa out.

    • Ram

      Don’t be a 🐖 yourself..why aren’t you supporting colback or saivet the same way..
      We knew Rafa didn’t want mitrovic from last January..he couldn’t get him out because there were no suitors. Now stop moaning.

  • Nicholas Dryden

    City’s bench cost more than our entire squad. I think 1-0 is pretty respectable. These self styled experts all think they could do so much better, it’s hilarious. Re – Mitro all the badge kissing and chest thumping in the world can’t disguise a slow, misfiring red card waiting to happen. If you had a net spend of 19M who would you bring in if even loans for Abraham and Loftus Cheek were blocked due to wage saving. I’d love to know.

  • Mxpx

    Fair play to him he deserves better than to be not even on the bench behind two strikers that aren’t scoring
