Newcastle United star Ayoze Perez has said that his club are determined to prove their doubters wrong this season.
Following their return to the Premier League, the Magpies started the season in poor form after successive defeats against Tottenham and Huddersfield. They have however managed to bounce back after recording victories against West Ham and Swansea.
Many have questioned the quality of the Tyneside outfit this term as they failed to provide manager Rafa Benitez with sufficient capital to invest in new talent. Benitez himself even went public in revealing his frustration towards the clubs board.
Nonetheless, Perez has said that his team-mates are prepared to prove their doubters wrong and said, “When the window is open you have to deal with those rumours. But we know the team we have and how strong we can be.
“This dressing room is ambitious, we want to win games and that’s going to be important this season. We have got two wins in a row and the most important thing is that we are working on what we have to do.
“We want to show that we should be playing in this league and these wins will give us some confidence.”
