Ex-Newcastle flop who didn’t play one minute for club fires current side towards Champions League quarter final


Facundo Ferreyra didn’t play a single competitive minute for Newcastle during an ill-fated loan spell during the 2014/15 season and is generally considered to be a damning indictment of the club’s recruitment policy under Mike Ashley.

So it will come as no surprise to Magpies fans to learn that Ferreyra is one match away from playing in a Champions League quarter final after scoring for Shakhtar Donetsk in the last-16 tie against Roma on Wednesday night.
