Exclusive Willems interview in Saturday's programme
Jetro Willems is the cover star of UNITED, Newcastle United’s official matchday programme, for Saturday’s visit of Brighton & Hove Albion (5:30pm kick-off).
The on-loan full back, who netted a sensational opening goal against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, sat down for an exclusive, eight-page interview, which is published inside this weekend’s issue.
In it, the 25-year-old discusses his memorable first goal for the Magpies, as well as his career so far, which began at the age of just 16 and saw him become the youngets ever player to feature at a European Championships.
The former Sparta Rotterdam and PSV Eindhoven man also speaks about United’s long-standing interest in him, the former Newcastle player who helped show him around the city that is now his home, and also speak about his time at parent club Eintracht Frankfurt.
Meanwhile, Geordie singer-songwriter Sam Fender – who is hoping to secure the number one spot with his debut album Hypersonic Missiles – chats to UNITED, while charismatic scouse defender John Bailey features in Flying Visit.
Paul Joannou recalls the Magpies’ meeting with Pelé in the 1970s, and young full back Oliver Walters is profiled in High Hopes.
There is also a tribute to the late Kenny Mitchell, while skipper Jamaal Lascelles and head coach Steve Bruce pen their regular columns.
