Jetro Willems opens up about ‘chaotic’ start at Newcastle

Newcastle United defender Jetro Willems is thankful for the current international break, as his start at St. James’ Park has been nothing short of ‘chaotic’.

The Dutchman joined the club on a season-long loan from Eintracht Frankfurt and was unable to return to his homeland after completing his transfer to get things organised until now.

Speaking about the break in Premier League action, Willems admitted (Chronicle): “Personally, it has been a great time to get some rest.

“It has been chaotic for me. I came from training camp of Frankfurt and I could not go back to Holland and organise my things.”

Things were to get trickier for Willems, after the 25-year-old started to struggle with a hamstring problem – something he is over now.


“Everything is OK. I have trained normally so everything is OK,” he added.

TBR’s view

Newcastle fans will hope to see a reinvigorated Willems after the international break, especially since he has offered glimpses of his talent.

He may not have covered himself in any glory for the goal that was conceded against Arsenal in the first game, but Willems looked a handful at left wing-back against Watford.

He appears to possess good pace and likes to whip balls in – with Joelinton a decent aerial threat, he could become a useful weapon for the Toon Army.
