Nobby Solano had a near-fatal car crash in Peru a few weeks ago, but thankfully he returned to Tyneside without a scratch.
He was suffering from jet-lag in his native Peru when he arrived for a break, and ended up off the road after leaving the road.
Glenn Roeder: 'It has basically been the same old Nobby, which is fantastic. He has been full of enthusiasm and still has that great willingness to do well for this club.
'He is a player that everybody still admires and when we do warm-ups in training he always does them properly and using the right technique. Nobby is a good example to the younger players, and if you ever need somebody to demonstrate something he is the man.
'Nobby is a big, big name in Peru. And it would not be a surprise to me if he ends up being the national coach of Peru. When we have had discussions about coaching he has always shown an interest and I think it is what he wants to do after he finishes playing.'
