The Chap - legend in waiting

The Chap - legend in waiting

Having notched his first goal in black and white on Monday Claudio 'King of Napa` Cacapa has been quick to speak of his joy at seeing the net bulge. Speaking to the Ronnie he said:

'I scored around seven goals for Lyon in my seven seasons with them, but none of them gave me as much pleasure as that one on Monday night and I really do feel that I can get more. It was a fantastic feeling and such an important goal for us, and I'm on cloud nine at the moment. This has been a great move for me, and I could hardly be happier at the way things are going.

Most of my goals with Lyon came from headers from set pieces and we have some wonderful dead ball kickers like Emre, Charles N'Zogbia and Geremi, and both Abdoulaye Faye and myself feel we can knock in a few goals this season. Abdoulaye hit the post with a header in the first half on Monday night, but I was lucky that my effort went in and I'm sure I can improve on my scoring record with Lyon here at Newcastle.'

Meanwhile the Chap`s agent said:

'Claudio really is like a baby himself with a new toy because, he's enjoying life so much with Newcastle United. Obviously, I know all about Newcastle through Olivier Bernard and I knew it was the right club for Claudio, who while he is a rather quiet unassuming sort of person, he's so professional about the way he leads his life and his football.'
