Jonjo, who won the last of his six matches in England in 2015, is a key man at Newcastle. Joining the Swansea City club in 2016 after struggling to gain a foothold at Liverpool.
“Blow teams away”
Jonjo Shelvey is quite talented to play for Barcelona and will be the “blow teams away,” according to Newcastle United team-mate Matt Ritchie. Jonjo, who won the last of his six matches in England in 2015, is a key man at Newcastle, joining the Swansea City club in 2016 after struggling to gain a foothold at Liverpool. In 2010, a midfielder joined Liverpool from Charlton Athletic as an 18-year-old. But the versatile Richie claims that Shelvey may end up behind Barca or Real Madrid if he has a desire to focus on his game. An ex-Bournemouth man revealed Shelvey’s “insanity” instead of playing golf for Northumberland and entering the field three times a week. Richie told reporters: “For me, I told him so many times:” If you just bowed your head, focused solely on football and forgot about golf and anything else.”
Jonjo is “mad”
“That’s right, though. He is insane. He will play golf three times a week, and I am like this: “Jonjo, you cannot do this.” He is like this: “No, no, I feel better, Matty.” I look like, ‘That’s impossible.’ “But what a player, what a player. I’ve been at Newcastle for four years, and I honestly saw him inside the box no more than ten times. That’s how good Jonj is – and we do boxes every day. “This guy has a natural ability just to see passages, get the ball, move the ball,” I remember playing against him as a child. I think he was 14 years old – we played Charlton Under-16s at Portsmouth – and I think he scored a hat-trick.
Shelvey loves his golf too much
He was incredible. “He has a move, and he ended up at Newcastle. But I tell him very regularly: “Jonjo, if you had a fool, you could play for Barcelona so conveniently. “Shelvey is so good, not so is it? He is, nevertheless. He’s so good. “Jonjo has everything, he has the short one, and at Newcastle, Shelvey hits longer passes and tougher passes, and he is the one we are looking for to open teams and create.” But that does not disrespect for us at Newcastle – It seems to me that if he played for Barcelona or Real Madrid, you could imagine that he would blow up the teams with his abilities. “You have to have everything in the correct place, and he loves his golf too much, doesn’t he?
“He tells me: “I know Matty, but this is what I love, this is what I love.” Feel if you wanted to. You could. “Jonjo is Newcastle’s top scorer in the Premier League this season with five goals from the middle of the field, the 28-year-old was criticized for lack of discipline in the past and was twice retired in the 2017-18 campaign, leading Magpies to advance from the championship the previous season.
