Krul tells youngsters to grab cup chance

Published Add your comment

Newcastle keeper Tim Krul is urging his young team-mates to make the most of their Europa League chances as they attempt to force their way into Alan Pardew's plans.

The Dutchman made his senior debut for the Magpies as an 18-year-old in a 1-0 UEFA Cup victory over Palermo in Sicily in November 2006, and has since gone on to establish himself as number one for the club and a regular in the Holland squad.

"It is all about opportunities. I used to love the cup games because that used to be my opportunity, and it's the same thing for the other young lads now coming through," he said.
