Slimani is a player with Premier League experience, said Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez. He is a player who can fight with defenders, challenge and score goals. Hopefully he can give us some experience and some different characteristics to the strikers we have at the moment.
We are still trying to do things, said Benitez. It is not the ideal situation when you have to go to the 31st, waiting for a phone call. It means something is wrong but we cannot change what is going on here for a while.
