Gabby Agbonlahor has said he is relishing the competition this season with Christian Benteke coming in – hopefully it won’t mean we’ll see him on the wing again though!
Speaking to the Official Site Gabby said he had a battle on his hands to win back a starting place – although it must be said he’s done himself no harm with his cameo at Newcastle! – but he thinks the squad has a better balance upfront now, both in terms of experience and youth, and he thinks it’s going to be a good old battle as the season progresses.
‘I think this season it’s going to be interesting because there’s a lot of young strikers doing really well in training. It’s going to be hard for everyone, no one is guaranteed a starting place.’
Gabby says it’s the nature of the game as he remembers starting out at their age trying to nick a spot after impressing, and now time has come full circle and he knows he has to step up again to keep himself in contention.
Hopefully this is the season we’ll see the best from Gabby again. The last two haven’t had much to talk about in terms of praise, but Newcastle seemed to show he was back to his determined best.
