Tony Cottee suggested on the Gillette Soccer Special show on Sky Sports Premier League on Tuesday night (10:22pm, November 28, 2017) that he was impressed with the performance of Rolando Aarons for Newcastle United against West Bromwich Albion.
Aarons featured in Newcastle’s Premier League game against West Brom away from home at The Hawthorns in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.
The 22-year-old winger did not start the match, but the youngster came on as a substitute in the 64th minute.
Former West Ham United and Everton striker Cottee was following the match, and he was impressed with Aarons.
Cottee said on the Gillette Soccer Special show on Sky Sports Premier League on Tuesday night (10:22pm, November 28, 2017) about Aarons: “He came on in the 64th minute, and again he was heavily involved.
“He put a couple of really good crosses in. I have not seen a lot of the lad, but from what I have seen, I have been impressed.
“The point is when he has played and when he has been given a chance, I think there’s something there.”
Aarons is a very talented and promising young winger, but the issue with him has been injuries.
Now that former England Under-20 international is fully fit, the winger will hope to establish himself in the Newcastle starting lineup.
The Magpies have a good team, but they are in danger of getting relegated back to the Championship at the end of the season.
