Demba Ba Wants To Continue Working Hard To Improve

Newcastle United signing Demba Ba has declared that he will continue to work hard to improve his game so he can keep proving the doubters wrong.

The 26-year old Senegalese international has taken a while to reach the top but now he is here he is planning to stick around for a while.

The former West Ham star told the Daily Mirror : “My best quality is that mentally I am very strong. If you are a good, strong player you can thrive on pressure and expectation and rise to the challenge. Football is all about having fun. I will always be happy on a football pitch,”.

“When I was young and looking for a club, I went to Watford for a couple of months and I learned a hell of a lot. I hoped to get a contract, but it didn’t work out. I was upset but I didn’t give up. I had always wanted to play in English football.

“I went to Swansea and Barnsley, looking again. I tried to make those clubs take me but they didn’t and, after a few months, I had to go back to France. But I never gave up.

“It helps that I have had to work hard to get where I am now at this great club. I have had setbacks. Everything happens in life for a reason, good and bad.

“It has worked out well for me to think I was turned down by Swansea and Barnsley and am now at a club as big as Newcastle.”
