Ayoze Perez “Maybe it’s time to go back to Spain to a big team and enjoy La Liga”

3 years ago

Ayoze Perez has given plenty of interviews to Spanish media in these near five years he has been at Newcastle United.

In almost all of them he has usually been asked as to whether he would like to play in La Liga.

The reply pretty much every time has been yes…but sometime in the future.

The striker has now given yet another interview to Spanish media and once again the usual subject comes up.

However, in this interview with El Chiringuito the answer appears to have changed.

Ayoze Perez saying ‘that time has probably come’ to go and play in La Liga.

He turns 26 in July and has two years left on his contract and the player has said about how he has ambitions of playing for Spain as well.

A mixed reaction from Newcastle fans on whether that could happen…he is a player who is very up and down when it comes to scoring/creating goals and at the moment he is on an up with the presence of Rondon and Almiron helping.

El Chiringuito have put the interview out as an exclusive and have headlined it:

‘Maybe it’s time to go back to Spain to a big team and enjoy La Liga”

With the interview prompting these comments from Spanish football fans:

‘This boy is very big. What a head he has with his feet on the ground.’

‘Huge! Soon another canary in the national team!’

‘Ayoze wants to go to a big club in Spain. Valencia, Sevilla or Atlético.’

Also a translation by Sport Witness of part of what Ayoze Perez said to El Chiringuito:

Speaking to El Chiringuito in Spain, Ayoze Perez was asked a number of questions in a rather casual interview, ranging from whether Eden Hazard would be a good signing for Real Madrid to his future at Newcastle.

On the latter, he said:

“I believe in cycles.

“There comes a moment where you consider things, there comes a time for a change and after five years, that time has probably come.

“To return to your country in a big team to enjoy the First Division (La Liga) would be something good for my career.”
