Goodbye Luque, hope you’ll get more Lucky with Ajax

August 25 14:46 2007 Print This Article

Luque had expressed an interest in joining Real Betis and had also been linked with a move to PSV Eindhoven, Feyenoord, Bordeaux and Barcelona, before he finally choose Ajax as his new club. The 29-year-old Spaniard is expected to sign a three-year contract.

To be honest, the news is a bit of surprise, as I thought at first place that we will see a “Different” Luque this season. He has shown us what he can do during the pre-season games. He scores two goals against Celtics, and one more against the Italian side Juventus at St. James’ Park.

But after the signings of Alan Smith, and the good progress of both Milner and N’Zogbia, it seems that he is once again being sidelined by the new manager.

I feel very sorry for him, he’s actually a good player, and we haven’t got the chance to see his 100% efforts for Toon. His time on Tyneside was nothing but injury nightmares, which I think was not all his fault. I don’t think any player would love to get injured.

Luque, imho, was being sacrificed to free up funds for Sam Allardyce to buy at least 2 more players before the summer transfer door closed at the end of this month.

Farewell Luque, thanks for all you have done for Toon no matter how little it is, and goodluck with your new club!

    A very very good player..I am very sorry because he did not get the opportunity to approve what he is capable of..I am also confused because I believed that this season we would see the “real” Luque..It is very sad he is leaving the club..Anyway good luck Albert!!!
