It’s early days but Bruno Guimaraes is eyeing legendary status at Newcastle United.

Bruno Guimaraes wants to become a legend at Newcastle United after his brace sealed a dramatic 2-1 win over Leicester City.

There was a lot of hype surrounding Guimaraes’ £35million move from Lyon and he’s living up to every bit of it.

Guimaraes has scored three goals in just five starts for United and he’s also wowed supporters with his quality in possession.

He’s only 11 games into his Newcastle career - but he’s already eyeing legendary status.

He told Sky Sports: “What a feeling, what a game. The group deserved it. Scoring two goals today, it was brilliant!

“It was always my dream to play in the Premier League and I’m so happy for today. I want to be a legend here.

“It was my first goal with my head! I don’t remember very well but when I saw the ball I didn’t think twice.

“It was a brilliant cross from Joe Willock. The win was for the group, we are so happy for today because Leicester are a good team.

“It was really important to score my first goal at St James’ Park. Here now is my home. I want to play 100 times here!”
