Mitrovic has apologised for Newcastle United’s disastrous season but hopes the club will soon bounce back from relegation.
The Serbian international insists he is still in love with life at St James’ Park despite a bad end to his campaign when he was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Kyle Walker.
Mitrovic admitted his first season in England was a tough one but was proud to play in the Premier League after signing from Anderlecht.
He said: “I am sorry about relegation but Newcastle is too big a club and I hope that we will soon return to the elite.
“On a personal level I’m happy, I could not have given more, but I was however, making my debut in the strongest league in the world. At the moment I am living my dream in Newcastle.
“I hope to be at the club for many years and I will be a legend. Of course many children are dreaming of playing for Real, Barca, Manchester United – I always just wanted to wear the shirt of Partizan, Newcastle and my country.”
Mitrovic also played down his challenge on Walker on Sunday.
The red card means he will start next season banned for the Magpies. Mitrovic said: “The footage looks much more serious than it really was – (it was) a big fuss as far as I am concerned.”
