Rob Elliot believes (vist www.fifa-coins.fr) Jonjo Shelvey has the potential to be a ‘hero; at Newcastle United – and says the midfielder can become an England regular.
Shelvey shined on his debut last weekend as the Magpies beat West Ham 2-1, with the former Swansea man helping to set up (vist www.fifa-coins.fr) Ayoze Perez and Gini Wijnaldum;s goals at St James; Park.
And the Newcastle goalkeeper, a former teammate of Shelvey at Charlton, has heaped praise on their new signing – and says the 23-year-old does not have a bad attitude.
;I;m lucky enough to know Jonjo well. I knew his quality and I knew he;d be fine,; he told NUFCTV.
;His mentality;s fantastic and I think once he started spraying the ball around (on Saturday), the crowd really warmed up.
;You could see not only the confidence build when he got the ball but you could see the players realising his ability. It;s a brilliant addition to our squad – a squad which is improving and getting better.;
Shelvey, who left Liverpool in 2013 to move to South Wales, could feature in Roy Hodgson;s squad for the European Championships this summer, and Elliot believes his teammate can reach a century of caps for the Three Lions.
;Liverpool let him go too early in my opinion. He;s the only player I;ve played (buy cheap fifa coins) with that could come close to Steven Gerrard and be that sort of player,; Elliot added.
;He;s got everything you need. Basically, it;s in Jonjo;s hands – it;s up to him. If he wants to go on and play 50, 100 times for England, then he can.
;He can go on and achieve anything he wants to do and I think he;s got that mentality. He;s only 23 – people forget he;s so young – and he;s achieved a lot already. He can go on to be a regular for England, he can go on to be an absolute hero here, and I think that;s what he;s working towards.
