Sam Fender celebrated Newcastle United’s qualification for the Champions League last night while on tour in Italy with Bruce Springsteen.
Understanderbly the Geordie was gutted he wasn’t at St James’ Park as the Mags played their final home game of the season however the musician taunted United supporters by saying he was already one step ahead of them.
On Instagram Fender posted a video of the Toon celebrating and said: “So proud...
“Howay the lads, I’m already in Italy and me ma’s tea is freezing.’
He is, of course, referring to one of the more popular football chants in recent weeks ‘Tell me ma, me ma I won’t be home for tea...’
The North Shields musician is currently opening for his hero Bruce Springsteen in Europe ahead of his two massive sold out shows at St James’ Park at the start of June.
A massive Toon fan, Fender said when the shows were announced: “It’s a childhood dream come true, and we’re actually gonna play it on the 9th June. This is literally gonna be the biggest show we’ve ever done - our first stadium show, which is so weird to say! I can’t wait, it’s gonna be absolutely lush and I hope to see yas all there.”
