Christian Atsu’s Newcastle Utd Suffer Heavy Defeat In Friendly Against Middlesbrough
LISTEN SEP 1, 2020

Ghana international Christian Atsu was in action for his Newcastle United side today when the team suffered a 5-1 heavy defeat at the hands of Middlesbrough in a pre-season friendly match.

The winger struggled to play in as many games as he would have wanted in the 2019/2020 football season.

Now taking part in the English Premier League club’s pre-season training, Christian Atsu is putting in the needed work to convince manager Steve Bruce to hand him a bigger role next season.

In a pre-season game against English Championship club Middlesbrough, the Black Stars asset featured but his efforts could not save his team from being thrashed.

The Magpies suffered a 5-1 defeat at the end of the warm-up games staged at the Rockliffe Park with Allan Saint-Maximin netting the consolation goal for the team.

Christian Atsu has 1 goal in pre-season and will hope to impress in the remaining friendly matches before the start of the new season later this month.
