Obertan stunned by Newcastle atmos for Blackburn win

Newcastle United winger Gabriel Obertan admits he enjoyed victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Obertan says he's already enjoying life on Tyneside.

After tasting the winning match day feeling against Blackburn with St James' Park in fine voice, he told the Evening Chronicle: "That is the reason I moved to Newcastle.

"I was really happy when they came in for me and I did not hesitate. It is great the coach trusts me.

"There is a good group of players here, off the pitch there is a good atmosphere. I have no regrets coming here.

"We can get better now and I am finding my marks now. I am just enjoying playing football. It is great and I have not had this feeling for two years.

"It is great just to be on the pitch. It is perfect to play 90 minutes again each week.

"It is good to well against these teams, Blackburn and Wolves are quite physical."
