Newcastle new-boy Santon grateful to Mourinho for opportunity

Recent Newcastle signing Davide Santon has thanked former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho for preparing him for life in the Premier League. The 20-year-old full-back on Wednesday night completed his move from the San Siro for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £5million, when he signed a five-year deal.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I must say a big thank you to Mr Jose Mourinho. He has been really important for me.

"He has taught me to give 100% out on the pitch and other important things. He has been really important to my career.

"I can only thank him."
