Newcastle midfielder Anita: I must be positive role model

Newcastle United midfielder Vurnon Anita takes his role as a public figure seriously.

Anita knows he is a role model to children growing up.

"As footballers, we are role models. You should never forget this," he told the Evening Chronicle.

"The children look up to us and it is nice for them to meet us in person and I hope that stimulates them to get involved in football.

"I take being a role model very importantly."
