Speaking about Emre`s return, striker Big Tone Sibierski was full of complements for the former Inter and Galatasaray man:

‘It is great to see Emre playing again because he is such a good footballer. Technically, he is one of the best players I have ever played alongside. He can put the ball exactly where he wants and he seems to know exactly where his team-mates are. His vision is superb. He is a great character and a great lad as well. Hopefully Newcastle are going to keep him for as long as they can.

He knows exactly where and when you want the ball and he can also score a few goals himself. We have tried to keep his spirits up while he has been out injured. Now he is fit and he wants to play. We have to help him just as we would help anyone who is out of the side through injury. As a professional, he has tried to recover as quickly as he can. We have a great atmosphere in the changing room and I am sure that has helped him. It makes it easy for everyone to recover.’
