Oba slams exit rubbish
With Michael Owen having clarified his future over the weekend it`s great to see his strike partner Oba Martins hammer rumours about him leaving for Lazio and Fiorentina and pledge his future to Big Sam`s Tyneside revolution. The Nigerian said:
'I'm very happy and settled at Newcastle, I don't take any notice of the stories saying I'll leave. And if Sam Allardyce is here for five years I will be here for five years as well. That is how much I enjoy playing for him. I don't think I'll be going anywhere while Sam is here. I'm scoring goals and I'm playing games, that's all you can ask for as a striker.
It wasn't that easy when I first came to Newcastle and it took me a few months to learn about the Premier League, about England and living in Newcastle. I had to adapt to the style of football and it took me some time, but I'm very happy here.'
