Ba: Success down to Newcastle hospitality

Demba Ba credits his success at Newcastle United to the Northeast's hospitality.

Ba feels the warm reception given to him by the Toon Army has inspired him to sizzling exploits in front of goal.

Ba told the Evening Chronicle: "I like living in Newcastle, very much.

"It is a very simple life for me. I am at home with my family and I can just chill some days for the whole day.

"When I want to go out and do some stuff, I can do that as well.

"People here are more friendly than aggressive, so life is all right for me here."
