According to the Chronicle, they have been told that Newcastle United striker Joelinton actually looks good in training.

Joelinton has endured a hugely testing start at Newcastle, where his performances have been heavily criticised.

The Brazilian has scored just one goal for Newcastle, despite Steve Bruce showing great faith in him.

There is an argument to suggest that Joelinton simply isn’t getting enough service to show the best of himself.

 

However, when he has got the ball in good areas, he has shown a worrying lack of goal threat.

There are now real concerns from Newcastle supporters about their record signing.

But the Chronicle suggest that they have been told that Joelinton’s performances in training are actually encouraging.

Joelinton apparently scores regularly at Darsley Park, which may be why Bruce has persevered with him for so long to date.

Newcastle are next in action against Manchester City, when it remains to be seen whether Bruce will keep the faith in the forward.
