Gouffran happy playing for Newcastle boss Pardew

Newcastle United attacker Yoan Gouffran says he enjoys playing for manager Alan Pardew.

Gouffran joined Newcastle in 2013 from Bordeaux.

"Of course it is a very good relationship I have with him," he told The Independent. "He has trusted in me as a player since I first came to the club.

"He has believed in me and I believe in him. He changed my position. I was hesitant at the start when he first did that, but it has worked.

"When I worked my way into the team I scored a few goals and all I continue to do is to work hard, play each game as if it were my life and give everything I can."
