R.I.P. Cheick Tiote (1987 – 2017)

Always be remembered as the warrior on the defense area line, covering the defenders in the middle, Cheick Tiote has left this world due to a unexpected faint during a training session with his Chinese club. 30 years old, too young to die..

As Newcastle fan, we will always cherish the memory of him kicking the ball into the net to equalize during the entertaining and rushing 4-4 draw with Arsenal at St. James Park. The Ivory Coast midfielder just volleyed a crossing just outside the penalty box to leave Arsenal goalkeeper with no chance and send the entire sides of St. James Park into eruption. He soon run like hell into the side of the pitch to celebrate with all his Newcastle teammates came onto him.
