Newcastle striker Best need only look at tattoos for inspiration

Newcastle United striker Leon Best admits his tattoos are all the inspiration he needs.

The Nottingham-born striker has a tattoo which reads 'Work like a slave, eat like a king'.

Best said: "I love that saying. You put the work in, you get the rewards. All my tattoos mean something to me. I have my mum on my chest.

"I have 'Sky's the limit' and 'It's all a dream' a Biggie Smalls lyric from a song called Juicy. It's all about people not believing he could make it to the top.

"I got the one of my mum when I was 14. She was angry at first but then she was emotional."
