Anderlecht winger Mbark Boussoufa seems to have welcomed speculation linking him with a move to Newcastle United.
Mbrak Boussoufa – flattered by Newcastle’s interest
There has been news this week that Mbark’s Belgian club, Anderlecht are keen to keep him and their sponsors KIA Motors of South Korea, have even offered to help with his wages to keep him at the club.
However, today Mbark says he flattered by Newcastle’s interest in him:
“I’m flattered by Newcastle’s interest. It is always nice to know clubs are watching me.” “I spent two years with Chelsea, so I know what English football is all about. I learned a lot from their players, especially Gianfranco Zola.”
“I was on the point of breaking into their first team when Roman Abramovich arrived. He signed seven star players, and the youngsters were not given their chance.”
“I would not say no to a good offer from England. If Newcastle want me they must first speak to my club – and then I’ll gladly listen to what they have to say.”
Reports are that Newcastle want an answer to their bid for Mbark by the end of this week. We don ‘t know if that’s true but by Boussoufa’s own words he seems quite interested.
In fact saying you are flattered is a come-on to Newcastle, so it may be the chances are high that if Kevin really wants Mbark, he would come to Newcastle.
