Andy Carroll has told how he can see the club developing well, and the long term plan of playing European football is coming together.
The Geordie, who has so far missed all matches so far this season due to injury, has expressed how excited he is by the current level of quality in the squad, and how that competition for places is healthy.
“When I first signed for the club the manager said this team could get into the top six and into Europe, and I can see the plan coming together now — it is not out of the question,” said Carroll.
“With the players we have I can’t see any reason why we can’t do that. We could definitely play in the Champions League in the new stadium. The quality is there, and with the new stadium coming we have everything else going for us.
”Every team needs competition for places, that is one of the things we have here — everyone is fighting for their place.”
Carroll is expected to return to first team football on 22nd November against Everton at Goodison Park.
