While not being spectacularly dominant as their early season form promised to be, Newcastle United did eventually secure their promotion back to the Premier League after a 4-1 win over Preston North End on Monday.
Goals from Christian Atsu and Matt Ritchie along Ayoze Perez’s brace finally bequeathed Newcastle the long awaited confirmation of their promotion from the Sky Bet Championship.
The stroke of the full-time whistle understandably saw the packed St.James Park erupt in relief and celebration as players and staff alike congratulated each other on their promotion to the Premier League.
With Newcastle securing promotion at the first time of asking, the celebrations did not just stop there with champagne flooding the Newcastle dressing room. Mitrovic in particular seemed intent on reaching out to everyone and the Newcastle media team, who were present in the dressing room, were caught in the middle of the Serb’s celebrations.
Check out the incident below –
Got to love Mitro 😂
