Newcastle winger Matt Ritchie asks to be excluded from Scotland duty "for the forseeable future", Alex McLeish reveals.
|He played against Cardiff and got sent off, which obviously I was not expecting,
said Benitez. After that, with Diame and Shelvey playing well, now Ki has the Premier League experience, too, so it has been difficult for him.
At the moment he wants to be here, I think, so we will see in the future,
He showed what he can do and has given us something different,
said Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez. I was happy with Joselu, Ayoze [Perez] and [Yoshinori] Muto, but he's a different kind of striker.
When we signed Rondon we were after a striker who could win the ball in the air, hold the ball up, score goals and has some mobility as well,
said Benitez. We knew about his mentality, we knew he could bring something different.
