Martins: Happy under Keegan
Newcastle star Obafemi Martins has taken a swipe at Sam Allardyce by saying he is enjoying himself more under Kevin Keegan.
The Nigerian struggled to hold down a regular place in the side under Allardyce with Michael Owen and Mark Viduka ahead of him in the pecking order.
However, under Keegan, Martins has flourished in a three-pronged attack alongside Owen and Viduka and the 23-year-old is thriving in his role
"My job is to score goals. It's what I'm happy doing and it's what every striker wants to do," Martins told the Daily Star.
Hinting that Allardyce should have played him more, Martins added: "You can only score goals if you are playing and that's been my problem but not any more."
