Jason Tindall hails 'outstanding' Newcastle United player

Jason Tindall’s given his verdict on Joelinton after the forward made a goalscoring return to the team.

Joelinton, recalled to the starting XI, scored in yesterday’s 3-3 home draw against Brentford. The result left the winless club 20th in the Premier League table.

However, the 25-year-old also lost his footing late in the game when Allan Saint-Maximin presented him with a chance to win the game.

“First of all, I think Joelinton’s a fantastic player,” said Tindall, who was running the bench with Graeme Jones with new head coach Eddie Howe isolating with Covid-19. Ever since we’ve been here, we’ve seen the quality that he’s got.

"The performance he delivered today was outstanding. His work ethic for the team was exactly what was asked. He got a fantastic goal, and hopefully that’ll give Joe the confidence moving forward, because he’s certainly going to be a big player for this football club and this team.”
