Returning to St James Park

Returning to St James Park

Nikos will return to St James Park on Saturday only to watch the game from the stands, as Newcastle asked for a term in his contract that will prevent him from facing them.

He said: 'I am a bit disappointed not to play, but there is nothing I can do about it. I would have loved to play in front of all the United fans. They have always been great and supported the team. I will certainly be at the ground to watch the game, but watching can not really be compare to being on the pitch. As far as the game is concerned, I am sure it is going to be a very difficult one. We need every point we can get and St James is not a place where you can easily get them!

Nikos continued: 'Against Aston Villa although we had a good first half, 20 minutes were enough for disaster to strike. They had 5 chances in 20 minutes and they managed to convert all of them to goals. It does not happen often, but it does happen. I hope February will prove to be a bit luckier for us than January did!'
