Solano is a Geordie!

In an interview with the Evening Chronicle Nobby uses all the usual clichés about being desperate to play against Boro, before adding this.

"I've loved living in this city and I would love to win something with Newcastle before my time at the club ends," he said.

"I learned my English in Newcastle, and my son Matias was born here, so he is a Geordie!

"It was hard for me when I first came to the club, but I always dreamed of playing in Europe during my career and the English Premiership is one of the greatest competitions in the world.

"The time has passed so fast. I'm one of the oldest players in the squad these days."

If anyone knows any other half-Peruvian Geordies we’d be interested to hear from them!
