Newcastle boss hails Tiote
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew believes Cheick Tiote is in better physical shape now than he was last season.
Tiote impressed for Newcastle in their goalless draw with ADO Den Haag on Saturday.
Pardew said in the Shields Gazette: "Cheick looks ten times better than he did last year, and I absolutely mean that.
"He did not come back well last summer, if I am honest. However, he has summered well this time and is in great physical shape.
"It is going to be a big season for Cheick.
"All my, what I would call big players, are important if we are to progress as a team, and Cheick fails into that category. He is in a good place."
