Newcastle United loan star declares “There is a lot more to come”

1 year ago

After only five league appearances in the years he has been at Newcastle United, Rolando Aarons is now thriving at Sheffield Wednesday.

Whilst previous loan spells have been a disaster in Serie A and the Czech Republic, the left-sided player has finally found his feet in the Championship.

In nine league appearances for the Owls so far, Rolando Aarons remains unbeaten.

The five wins and four draws have also coincided with Steve Bruce arriving at the club and now Sheffield Wednesday are only two points off the play-offs.

The Newcastle loan star declaring though: ‘There is a lot more to come.’

This weekend sees Sheff Wed travel to Stoke but already he is looking three weeks further ahead to when they travel to Norwich City.

The winger’s cousin Max Aarons has made a massive impact at right-back for Norwich and helped them top the Championship,  now five points clear of third with only eight games to play.

Max Aarons has been linked with a number of top Premier League clubs, including Tottenham.

Rolando Aarons is also set to face a former Newcastle teammate in Tim Krul. The Dutch keeper has played every minute of this Championship season so far for Norwich and after a nightmare few years of injury and little first team, is in line to make a triumphant return to the Premier League.

Always a strange one as to why Rafa Benitez had zero interest in giving Tim Krul any kind of a chance, for some reason(s) preferring to rely on the likes of Sels, Elliot and Darlow, before thankfully Martin Dubravka came in as undisputed number one.

Rolando Aarons talking to the Sheffield Star:

“I did not grow up with an arm around my shoulder with people saying: ‘yes, you are good.’

“I have never seeked it in football and wanted to prove it to myself.

“As long as I do that I am happy.

“It was the same when I started to play for Newcastle.

“The fans took to my style of play and it gives me a massive confidence boost and you want to show them what you can do a bit more and it works hand in hand.

“The happier they are to see what I do, the happier I am to show what I can do.

“There is a lot more to come.”

Rolando Aarons on facing cousin Max Aarons next month:

“I told Max: ‘make sure you have got your shinpads, I am ready to play.

“He has been fantastic this year and has been unreal and I am more than happy for him.

“But I am going to have to show him now as I am much older than him.

“I have not got it in mind, but when the game comes up, I am going to be texting him and trying to get in his head.

“We will see what happens.

“In the Championship, anyone beats anyone and it is a crazy league and a few wins changed everything. You have always got a chance.”
