Day 3 without football for Newcastle United fans – Obafemi Martins (video)

Does anyone else regret saying the international break was boring now?!

First up, Obafemi Martins – the Nigerian hitman who, for all his inconsistencies, brought us some explosive moments in a black and white shirt.

Now 35, he’s currently a free agent, but is still said to be on the look out for a new club after overcoming a horror hamstring injury that kept him out for the majority of 2018.
