Mikel Merino joined us in the summer of 2017 from Borussia Dortmund and wanted the move becasue he wanted to play more first-team football.

He’s always taking care of every single detail with every single player.” “It doesn’t matter whether you are the goalkeeper or the striker, he’s always taking care of you and that’s what makes him a great coach for me.” It must have been a double blow to Rafa last season because not only did he lose defensive midfielder Mike Merino but our other young player in that position – Isaac Hayden – told the manager he wanted to leave Newcastle for personal reasons.

Mikel Merino in action for Newcastle last season This is some of what Merino has said in an exclusive in the Chronicle today: “Once I made the decision.



The Spanish U21 International was an immediate hit at the club and helped us to get a good start to the season through the end of October.

We were not talking for too long but he wished me the best,” “I did the same and I still try to follow all the matches that Newcastle play.

Not only the league and the football but the culture and everything.” “It was great to have a Spanish manager who has made such a big impact in the game and in England with the fans.” “I learned a lot of things: what I need to do and what I don’t have to do on the pitch.

We liked Mikel a lot and he played 25 times for Newcastle with one goal and one assist: it’s a pity we lost him.
