Newcastle United legend Peter Beardsley says new signing Seydou Doumbia reminds him of Faustino Asprilla.
Doumbia played for Newcastle's Under-21s, who are managed by Beardsley, on Monday, leaving an impression on many despite only 45 minutes of the 2-1 defeat to Stoke.
Having had him with us yesterday and today, the first thing I thought was 'Tino Asprilla'.
When he we kicked off, he stepped over the ball and it was funny for me because obviously I used to play with Tino. As stupid as it sounds, that was the highlight of the game for me, when he stepped over the ball!
The crowd almost went one way and the ball went the other. Class.
