–As EPL kicks off next week
Newcastle United of England forward Sammy Ameobi says this coming season is going to be the biggest of his career.
Speaking exclusively to supersport.com, Ameobi says:“I am no longer a kid, I am in the last year of my contract with Newcastle and I have to start it with a bang.
I have had a lot of injuries which I am hoping I have gotten over now so I need to play very well to either get a new contract with Newcastle or be able to make a good move elsewhere”
The tall leggy attacker was also says how his brother has been a huge influence on his career.
“He has always been there for me” he says of former Newcastle striker and older sibling Sola Ameobi.
“whenever I have needed advice he would volunteer it and also if I try to make moves that might have derailed my career he has been quick to pull me back on track. It is great to have a proper professional as an older brother”
On his international future “it will be a great honour to play for Nigeria. I would love it. I have seen how it has been with my brother and the world cup was a great experience which I would love to experience and help make sure Nigeria participates in again”
