New Ginola?
New Ginola?
Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton was impressed by Fabrice Pancrate.

Is he the new Robert? Is he the new Ginola? Who knows? Hughton was impressed with his performance in the reserves though, saying:

He did well and I enjoyed what I saw,” said the Toon chief after watching a double from Phil Airey and a strike from Peter Lovenkrands seal victory.

However, with any player on trial it’s a case of looking at them over a period of time.

We wanted to see him in a game, though, and that’s why he played tonight.

He’s been with us for the past week or so and we’ll continue to have a look at him over the next couple of days.

He’s an experienced player and has played at a good level for a number of years.

He can player in a couple of positions and showed tonight that he’s got a good work rate and had a few nice touches.”

Let’s hope he delivers in the first team.
