Newcastle United striker Papiss Demba Cisse says they should be going for European qualification.

Cisse was outstanding on debut against Aston Villa.

Former Freiburg hitman Cisse told the Evening Chronicle: "I've experienced playing in front of some great crowds in the Bundesliga.

"But nothing quite like this. At my last club Freiburg the fans were incredible.

"Here the fans have made me feel very welcome very quickly.

"I can't thank them enough for that. But the best reward for them would be to help get them into Europe - they deserve it."
