Callum Wilson delivers five-word message that Newcastle fans will love


Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has confirmed he will be back “soon” from injury.

The Magpies’ number 9 has not been seen since the 3-3 draw with Manchester City in August. He scored that day but had to be substituted with a hamstring injury.

Wilson has since missed Newcastle’s last five games in all competitions, including four Premier League games.

In his absence, Eddie Howe’s side struggled in attack, coinciding with Bruno Guimaraes and Allan Saint-Maximin also suffering from fitness issues.

Luckily, it sounds like Wilson is on his way back. It has been reported that he will return after the international break against Fulham. Now the man himself has commented on his fitness.

Wilson’s message to Newcastle fans

The 30-year-old appeared alongside Mikhail Antonio on the latest episode of The Footballer’s Football Podcast.

The Newcastle striker spoke about the 1-1 draw with Bournemouth and admitted his team-mates didn’t show enough quality in the last third. He then delivered a five-word message that will be music to the ears of Toon fans.

He said, “Wilson will be back soon, you know.”

Exactly what the Toon Army wants to hear

Wilson is revered on Tyneside and he’s always a huge failure when he’s injured. Unfortunately, that happens far too often.

But the sounds coming out of the club are good, and Wilson himself sounds optimistic that this sacking is coming to an end. And it could be perfect timing after what happened in Sweden.

Club record new signing Isak had traveled for an international match but has now been dropped from the squad due to injury. He was deemed unfit to play in any of the upcoming Sweden Nations League matches.

It’s a blow to Sweden and it’s also a problem for Newcastle. If he is not fit enough to play for his country, whose last game of this international break is next Tuesday, what chance does he have of appearing at Craven Cottage on October 1?

Hopefully he returns in time, and hopefully Wilson’s five-word fitness message means he’ll be back, too.
