Davide Santon: “There is not a nice atmosphere in training. We are all together and friends, but nobody is happy with the results and where we are.
“One thing you need to know is that everyone cares about the club. I care so much about Newcastle United.
"I owe the club so much because they gave me a chance to play in the Premier League when I was so young. The manager has given me a lot of confidence, as have my team-mates, in my two years here.
“The same goes for our fans because they have helped me so much. If I do something wrong in a game they never have a go at me. That is important.
“I want to be here. I don’t know what will happen in the future, but right now all I want is for Newcastle to do well and make sure they remain in the Premier League.
“We need to win some games in a row. The problem has been, for example, that we beat QPR then lost a few games. We need to win a few games, even draw some, and that will help with confidence.
“I don’t even think about Newcastle playing in the Championship. We will stay in the Premier League, but it’s up to all of us to make sure that happens.”
