Faustino Asprilla back in Newcastle

Toon hero Tino Asprilla is back in Newcastle.

The former striker told the Evening Chronicle: "I am delighted to be back in Newcastle.

"I actually regard it as my second home.

"I was only in Newcastle for a couple of years but I loved playing in front of their passionate fans. They are the best supporters.

"I know they will have many memories of me, but it's the same for me because I remember just how good it was to play in front of such a noisy crowd.

"To see them so close to the danger area was a shock.

"But I think, with the supporters behind the team, they can stay up.

"And with so many quality players in the squad I think they will be safe. That's what I am hoping for.

"It has been great to be back and see so many friends, and I wish them well."
