Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern are looking forward to next campaign, as Rafa Benitez may be able to lead them to a European place after showing signs of promise this season.
Indeed, the Magpies will be desperate to improve on this season’s performances as they struggled to ensure consistency, with many of our local northerners wanting to see a number of changes made this summer.
Mike Ashley may want Rafa Benitez to bring a few youngsters up through the ranks next season, as the Sports Direct mogul hasn’t exactly been generous with transfer funds in recent transfer windows. Although, this won’t be too much of a problem for Newcastle United as they have a number of promising young players in their youth ranks, so this is definitely something that supporters can be excited about.
With that in mind, Ashley must be begging Benitez to promote these TWO youngsters…
Mohammed Sangare, who arrived in the UK as a 14-year-old, has played 16 games this season at second string level and netted three goals.
The 19-year-old operates as a central midfielder who likes to get on the ball and make things happen, which is definitely something that the first-team could benefit from next season.
So, it looks as if the Newcastle youngster has a bright future ahead of him, with a move up to the first-team being just reward for his efforts thus far.
Freddie Woodman was sent out on loan to Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen for the second half of the season, where he managed to make eight appearances in what was a rather successful loan spell.
Newcastle United experienced some troubles in the goalkeeping department this season, with Martin Dubravka being the only player that has proved he deserves a future at the club. So, having seen Woodman help secure Aberdeen a European spot this season, perhaps Benitez will look to make him his second-choice goalkeeper in the next campaign.
