Martin Dubravka believes a ‘crazy’ Matt Ritchie is the best trainer at Newcastle United.
The Slovakian has praised the wing-back, saying his work rate off the field is ‘something special’ – feeling he’s a player like no other he’s seen before.
When asked ‘who is the best trainer’ by NUFC TV, here’s what he had to say:
“We have a couple of players who really hard, but I would say crazy Ritchie.
“This guy…I’ve never seen a player like him before.
“He’s something special.
“But I’m glad we have him in the dressing room.”
Amusingly, the club’s no.1 also chose Matt Ritchie when asked for the ‘Kitman’s worst nightmare’, saying this about the 30-year-old in NUFC TV’s latest episode of teammates:
“Matt Ritchie, 100%!”
“This guy…He has to have everything perfect.
“After him, Allan (Saint-Maximin). These two guys.
“Underpants, socks, everything has to be perfect!”
A hard worker and clearly a high maintenance player too, with this not being the first time he’s been selected by his teammates as the kitman’s worst nightmare!
