Good Question - Why IS Anita In Our First Team?

Last updated : 23 January 2015 By Footy Mad - Editor

And judging from what we have seen so far ... I AGREE!

How IS he in the first team? What does John Carver see that the majority of Newcastle fans don't?

Anita has been the target of a verbal volley from PSV Eindhoven supremo Marcel Brands.

The Dutch midfielder has been with the Magpies for three seasons after joining the club from Ajax but in an astonishing attack Brands has described Anita’s presence in the Premier League as “a miracle”.

Anita’s deal to Newcastle was overlooked by super agent Mino Raiola, who also looks after Zlatan Ibrahimović.

PSV’s technical director Brands said: “The average agent is again showing more interest in players and not just in the top players who everyone wants.

“Anita, I still think, is one of the most miraculous transfers.

"Let’s be honest, at Ajax he was almost a substitute and he will never be on our shortlist at PSV.

“He will never be a star player for Newcastle, but he is still there.

“Apparently the foundation from Ajax and the Eredivisie have been good enough.”
