Gael Bigirimana looks happy and settled on Tyneside since joining Newcastle United from Coventry City in the summer.
The Burundi-born battler who is eligible to play for 4 different countries at International level (Burundi, DR Congo, Uganda and England), has been speaking about the love from fans:
“I love making the fans happy, and leaving them with something to cheer about. They pay their money to watch us, so I always want to make sure I give 100%.
“It’s good for the fans who pay to support the club. I’m just grateful to be in this position. They’re great fans.”
Alan Pardew called upon Bigi during the Aston Villa game and the 18-year old didn’t disappoint.
