NUFC flop admits he’s dreaming of big move & Champions League football – Bizarre comments

Joelinton has called playing for a top six club a “dream” and admitted to having dreams to play in the Champions League once again.

The Brazilian forward, who has scored a measly six goals in two years since his £40million record signing, competed in Europe’s elite collection while playing in Germany for Hoffenheim.

To say he has struggled on Tyneside is an understatement, with Steve Bruce only just working out that he can’t be trusted to lead the frontline as an out-and-out centre forward.

Very few Newcastle fans would put Joelinton in their best possible starting XI, so to say that he possesses ambitions to leave us and play for a bigger club are bizarre.

Here is what the 25-year-old said to Brazilian media outlet UOL:

“It’s a dream. Newcastle is a great club, but they are below those others.

“I know that to get to this level I need to work harder and make a better season than what I’ve done here.

“I want to play in the Champions League again, but that just depends on what I do at Newcastle.

“Things happen very fast in football. I have to keep working, confident, with positive thinking.”

Age is still on his side, but you get the feeling that this season really is now or never for Joelinton. He has looked slow, lethargic and extremely goal-shy since his arrival.

He did make a brief cameo in our 4-2 defeat to West Ham, but he’ll be struggling to get regular starts if ASM and Wilson manage to stay fit.

For him to plan on using us as a stepping stone is comical considering how much of that £40million price tag we would earn back if he was to leave our club right now.

  1. The only Champions League football Joelinton will get is as a ball boy at the match, and he will probably drop it!
    Who does he think he is?
    Perhaps the luckiest “player” to be earning what he does, for being useless!

  2. What has he said that’s so wrong?. There’s plays in non league that would dream of CL football.

    But why miss an opportunity to bash the kid again 🤷🏼‍♂️🙄.

    I can see why people think these comments look pretty odd when he can’t even get in our team.

    When you’re the clubs record signing and you’ve got six goals in two seasons, it’s not a great look to talk up a move to a bigger club than the one you’re at…

  4. BS. He isn’t talking up his chances, he’s talking up the club’s chances. Read the original interview. This bull**** came from one idiot ‘journalist’ asking about other clubs, Joelinton just batted the question away & talked about the ‘dream’ of the toon achieving top 6.
