Black Stars winger, Ghana winger Christian Atsu has revealed that he is “working hard for everything he’s been given in football”.
Atsu joined the Rafa Benitez side from Chelsea after failing to break into Jose Mourinho’s team.
According to him, he is working hard after his difficult spell at Everton and Bournemouth.
“For me, I know there is more from me to give to these fans. I’m working hard for everything I have been given in football. I will bring everything out here in Newcastle.’
“I’d say I’m trying, I’m trying. It’s not easy. I know for sure I will be better. I’m trying to work hard for the team and forget proving myself – there’s no need in proving myself in the English league,’ Atsu told nufc.co.uk.
“Honestly, I’ve enjoyed my football here, with the coaches, friendships with my colleagues. I’ve enjoyed it so much. The fans have given me great encouragement. I’m happy. With them there, we know we are fighting for something.”
“I’m always confident. Sometimes I’m down, but mostly I’m confident in my life now. For me, I know there is more from me to give to these fans. I’m working hard for everything I have been given in football. I will bring everything out here in Newcastle,” he concluded.
He lasted 64 minutes for Newcastle United as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley at home on Wednesday.
