As reported by the Chronicle, Dwight Gayle has spoken after reaching twenty goals this season.
With the season only being in January, Gayle’s twenty goal haul is remarkable and the Newcastle star doesn’t look to be slowing down.
When asked about reaching the milestone, Gayle said: “It’s obviously a fantastic achievement for me,”
“It’s a credit to the team and what they’re providing for me as a lot of my goals come from inside the box.
“We’ve got great quality in the starting XI and from the boys that are coming off the bench.
“I’m just relishing playing with the quality I’ve got behind me.”
When asked about comparisons with the great Alan Shearer, Gayle said: “He did it every year, to be honest,”
“So, for me, it’s the beginning and I can continue it in future.”
Gayle was also full of praise for his fellow United striker, Daryl Murphy , adding: In the past few years in the Championship, he’s been fantastic.
“He’ll bring something different. He brings great experience and will help the younger boys out.
“He’ll do fantastically well.”
