‘No brainer’ – Many Newcastle fans react to reported advanced talks to sign ‘exciting player’

OPINION

Vasco da Gama forward Marrony appears to have divided a section of Newcastle United supporters on Twitter after it was reported by Portuguese newspaper Record that the Magpies are in advanced talks to sign the 20-year-old. Not a lot is known about Marrony as he has only made 22 appearances across all competitions in his career for Vasco, but one thing is for sure, Sporting CP’s interest in the Brazilian youngster is a good sign. Portuguese clubs regularly snap up youngsters from Brazil and introduce them to European football. If Marrony is on Sporting’s radar then it’s fair to assume that he is someone with decent potential. It’s understandable that some Newcastle fans would be sceptical about a young forward who has just one goal in senior football to his name. However it’s important to understand that although Marrony is naturally a striker, he has been forced to play out on the wing a lot at Vasco, who are hardly one of the better teams in Brazil’s Serie A as they currently sit 15th in the table and are plagued by financial issues.
