Roeder Plays Down Luque Rift

Laurent Robert and Craig Bellamy may have moved on but Newcastle still have an unhappy bunny in 9.5million signing Albert Luque. But caretaker manager Glenn Roeder insists the media made a meal of the player's supposed reaction at being dropped for the match against Portsmouth on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Spanish international was allowed to go home and he did not 'storm out' of St James' Park.

Roeder: 'He's fine. We sat down and had a chat after training and it was good for me and good for Albert. It was a private chat, but a good chat. He told me his views on a few things, which was good.

'I don't know how long I will be here for, but while I am here I have to be able to work with the players in the best way possible way, and the best approach in most cases is to sit down and talk.

'I have seen him play since he signed in the summer and I have seen him playing in Spain for Real Mallorca. We also know what he is capable of from what he does in training.

'He is a typical Spanish player, very skilful. His English continues to improve and now we have to find a way of getting the best out of him.'

Still too much of an egotist. Put him on the bike and point the way to the continent.
