Encouragement for Muto at Newcastle

This week the Leicester City forward Shinji Okazaki offered positive words towards his countryman Yoshinori Muto. As Leicester City celebrated a 2-0 victory over Newcastle at the weekend Okazaki watched on from the bench at Muto once again suffered defeat with his new club. 

The Newcastle supporters responded at full-time with boo's and Muto was once again left frustrated as he was a second-half substitute. As the player has only 86 minutes for his new club over six matches. 

Then despite two Japan internationals in the squad for both sides the "Japanese Derby " did not materialise. The players did embrace however at the full time showing their respect for one another.  

As Rondon is the Newcastle main striker when Muto has had a chance he's played in the role of the second striker. This has often meant the player as needed to go wide to look for the ball. The type of football which the player is trying to adapt to at the moment. 

Then at full time, the Newcastle United new signing revealed how Okazaki passed on advice to him about playing in this position in the Premier League in England.
