Newcastle striker Joselu: I know I miss chances - but so does Ronaldo!

Newcastle United striker Joselu has defended his goalscoring rate.

In 2017/18, Joselu averaged a goal every four-and-a-half games. So far this season, he is taking just a quarter of the time to find the back of the net.

He said, “I know last season that I missed chances, but all the strikers missed chances. I saw games where Cristiano Ronaldo would have 15 chances and miss 13, but score two goals - and he's the best striker in the world. That's the good thing.

“But I try to do my best on the pitch; I try to run, I try to press, I try to score as well, but some games it's not like that.

“I go home, I try to rest, then the next week start training on Monday and try to prepare for the next game.

“I try to score because I want to score and I want to help the club to stay up. I don't want to miss the chances.

“I try to do my best every game, and when you have a bad game, you just have to go home and rest. The next day is a new day, and the next week is a new week."
