Would you let Kazenga Lua Lua quit Newcastle United?

Kazenga - Needs regular playing time but not getting it at Newcastle United

20 years of age and has played 4 times for Newcastle United seniors and the supposed brother of Newcastle United former, Lomano Lua Lua. That would be Kazenga Lua Lua, the Congolese winger who hasn’t made a real breakthrough at the Toon for the last couple of years. Today he joined Brighton & Hove Albion on loan for an initial 1 month. Lua Lua is highly rated on Tyneside but has failed to jump the queue ahead of Jonas Gutierrez, Wayne Routledge etc and the youngster says he will sacrifice his Newcastle United dream to play regular first team football.

Dennis Wise conveniently enough recommended the young winger to Gus Poyet and the former Spurs assistant obliged to take the 20-year old on, hoping to get good use out of Lua Lua, who is cousin to Leeds United’s Tresor Kandol.

Lua Lua today said :

“I don’t really know about my future there.

“After this season I’ve got one more year.

“I have been playing for Newcastle’s reserves for about five years now and I don’t want to keep playing for the reserves, so maybe in the summer it will be time for me to move.”

“We’ll see what happens. I have come here for a month and I will try to do my best in that time.

“If the manager would then like me to stay I’ll have no problem with that. I have come here to enjoy it, play more and help the team get more points.

On the topic of Newcastle United and the current situation on Tyneside, he commented :

“It has been disappointing at Newcastle, because at the start of the season I was playing and coming on as a sub.

“Then, when I injured my ankle and groin, that was at a time when some of the other young players were pushing for a place, so it hasn’t been a good season for me.”

It’s obvious to see that he wants regular action on the pitch and quite frankly, he’s not going to get it, unless injuries plague us again, or we’ve the league wrapped up nice and early. Somehow I think the first option might be a little more realistic.

Either way, what do you think? Should Lua-Lua be given a right go in the team? There’s no doubting the lads talent but whether he has the motivation or patience to wait for his chance, only time will tell. At least now at Brighton, he’ll be given a chance to show what he can do, to both Poyet and indeed Chris Hughton.

Comments welcome 🙂

Lua Lua is rubbish. After 5 years at NUFC he cannot break into the team. He is going on loan to Brighton. Rubbish.Enough said. Get rid.

I like the lad, I wish we had the chance to use him more often, reminds me a lot of Martins, especially the goals he has scored for the reserves, really want to see the others he has scored - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgC47wGihtE Would be a shame to see him go personally, but I'd rather not see his career go to waste at Newcastle.. on another loan we've done, I want Zamblera to come back, he was awesome on Fifa.

he is one of the only players who plays for the shirt and not the money he is one of our best youngsters and he never get a chance i mean we need to let go of Butt and let Lua Lua take his place for more playing time.

Mag I choose neither I choose an effective passing game where we bring our wingers into play, of course I'm not bothered what style of football we play as long as we get in the premier league however I personally don't think the long ball is the answer.

Send him out for the rest of the season on loan and give him a shot. At the moment if routledge were injured houghton would out guthrie or pancrate there. pancrate wont be renewed though so it could be Luas chance if he is seen elsewhere doing well

as long as the hole in his arse points to the ground he'll never be any better than a 1st division player. one of many headless chicken's on newcastle's books.

He's only just turned 19 and he's been playing in the reserves for 3 years, he could still have a future but needs to be given a chance. Personally I think he's an exciting player who runs at defences and uses pace, trickery and creativity in his game. The criteria of pace, trickery and creativity doesn't fit whith Hughton so I don't think he'll be given a chance whilst he's in charge.
