PSG striker Amara Diane has talked down the chances of a move to Newcastle United.
Amara Diane – denies quotes were made
L’Equipe is reporting that Diane has denied quotes attributed to him this week.
Diane had been reported as saying he was excited about the prospect of joining Newcastle United in the summer, and of course we were only too willing to report that news, whether he was any good or not.
The 25-year-old forward had seemingly said to Sky Sports last week:
â€œKevin Keegan is a dream coach, his team always plays offensive football and playing in England would be a great opportunity,â€
â€œI know there is some contact between the two clubs and if an agreement is reached, I will go to Newcastle.â€
â€œTo play with Michael Owen would be great and there is also Obafemi Martins who is a top striker.â€
â€œThe Premier League is attractive and some of my Ivorian friends are there so I would be in good company.â€
Well, it turns out the quotes were made up by somebody, and were not actually said by the player. So how come Sky Sports was involved, since they are usually a solid reporting outfit?
What a shame – it’s always nice to hear a player singing the praises of our club.
Oh well, another false report – unfortunately.
