Newcastle teammates explain significance of new chant to £1.5m star

Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez says that his new song means a lot to him.

Newcastle United's goalscoring sensation Ayoze Perez says that his teammates have explained the significance of his new song to him. 

Perez hit the back of the net for the third game running against West Bromwich Albion and the Newcastle supporters rewarded their new striker by singing his name for the rest of the match.

The fact that Perez's chant is to the same tune as Andy Cole's old song shows how highly rated he is and the Spaniard has been able to appreciate the significance of it after some explanation from other members of the Newcastle team. 

"I listened to the song, and the dressing room explained the significance,” Perez said to the Sunderland Echo.

“It’s the same song they sung about Andy Cole. It was very important for me. It’s very nice."

“The fans are always with us, and that’s very important to the team.”

Perez's form has been a major reason behind Newcastle's improvement in results recently.

The side have now won their last five matches in all competitions and have climbed the Premier League table at a rapid rate. 

Perez's goal this weekend was further evidence of his quality, too. The youngster flicked the ball into the back of the net with a brilliant piece of skill and he looks to be the major goal-threat in the side now. 

At 21-years-old he looks a fine singing from Alan Pardew this summer and the supporters of the club are certainly excited about his future at St. James' Park. 

Unfortunately for Perez his momentum has been halted somewhat by the international break, but he will be hoping to continue hitting the back of the net when club football returns in two weeks.

Newcastle next take on Queens Park Rangers in what appears another winnable fixture in their next match.
