Shola Ameobi expresses Newcastle disappointment

18 February 2016, 10:06Israel Ojoko

London - Former Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi is disappointed to see the club struggling to survive relegation in the English Premier League.

Newcastle are currently in 18th place on the log, with just 24 points from 26 games.

They suffered a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday after several defeats, a situation that has now left the Nigeria international disappointed.

"It's very disappointing as a fan. That's what I am, first and foremost. I want to see my hometown do well and it's obviously worrying times at the moment,” he said on Eatsleep Football.

"But you've got to continue to have faith and belief that the guys can pull it out of the bag. They've certainly got the quality to be able to do that and I just hope that's the case."

Ameobi, 34, is a product of the Newcastle youth set-up and went on to play over 300 times for the senior side during a 19-year stay. Last week, he penned a deal with League One side Fleetwood Town.
