Hughes looking forward to Nou Camp return

Last updated : 19 November 2002 By Martyn Elliott

Hughes said: "Going back to Barcelona will be special for me as that was where I made my Newcastle United debut.

"And to be honest I am just looking forward to playing in the Nou Camp when it will be full, because the last time there were only around 20,000 in the stadium.

"In fairness, it's not just about Barcelona, as the Inter Milan and Bayer Leverkusen games will be great ones as well.

"We knew the draw would put us into a great group so it certainly didn't disappoint."

Those of you who stood in the upper tier of the Nou Camp watching a dismal 1-0 defeat on that damp November evening five years ago will be pleased that it was a memorable occasion for somebody.

Still the pre and post match drinking was pretty good!
