Albert Luque is hoping for a chance to shine this season under manager Sam Allardyce.Newcastle United misfit Albert Luque is hoping for a chance to shine this season under new manager Sam Allardyce.
The Spanish forward was brought to The Magpies by Graeme Souness, although he rarely featured and that trend continued under Glenn Roeder.
With former Bolton boss Allardyce now at St James' Park the ex-Deportivo La Coruna ace simply wants a run in the side to show what he can do.
"I'm happy, but I'm very demanding with myself and I know I can give more on the pitch," stated Luque.
"I am perhaps having the best feeling since I arrived at Newcastle and I only ask that they give me opportunities.
"I have had a good understanding with the new trainer since his arrival. I believe I am demonstrating what I can do, little by little.
"But my problems at Newcastle have not been due to lack of communication with the different trainers, but simply that I have not had enough continuity in the team."
