Newcastle midfielder Emre has vowed to repay Graeme Souness.Newcastle midfielder Emre has vowed to repay Graeme Souness for the faith he has shown in him.
The summer signing from Internazionale has seen the first few months of his Newcastle career blighted by injury.
However, Emre is in line to return to action against Wigan on Saturday after five weeks out of action and he is determined to make up for lost time.
"When I got injured, the manager was under pressure and the team hadn't scored," said Emre.
"For me, the gaffer is a very important person, I believe in him and I think he believes in me.
"It was a fear of mine that if results did not improve the manager would go before I had the chance to play for him again.
"That was a worry because I thought maybe I would never get the chance to repay him.
"I played against Albania for 45 minutes on Wednesday and feel better.
"Five weeks out for me is very, very long and it's even more frustrating because I had only just joined this club."
