Swede Star Hits Out At 'Unfriendly Geordies'!
Just when we thought we were the friendliest people in the country ... a Swedish upstart says football in Turin is "much more fun than in Newcastle".
But Landskrona starlet Erik Andersson is ready to snub interest from Juventus - as well as Newcastle - in favour of staying in Sweden.
In other words, the kid is homesick. It has nothing to do with friendly footballers, big stadiums or passionate fans ... he misses his mam!
The 15-year-old has recently taken in trials in England and Italy, but says that moving on at this stage may do more harm than good.
Oh yes ... and his mam misses him.
Erik Andersson: "I have had a very good season.
"I believe I will progress more if I stay at home.
"They (Newcastle) didn't talk to me, it was a bit strange.
"It was much more fun at Juventus, with better football and nicer players."
