abib Beye has today talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle and says he is absolutely devastated by the red card he received last night.
Habib lasted just 12 minutes into his comeback game, as he tackled Brazilian Robinho, and was given a red card and a penalty against him for his troubles.
Habib talked about the sending-off today with the Newcastle Evening Chronicle:
“For me that was the start of my season and I’m devastated by the decision.” “I wouldn’t have made the tackle if I didn’t think I could have got the ball, and that’s why I am so disappointed.”
“It was my first game back for some time, and to be sent off so early is very disappointing.”
Beye has been both a good player and very popular with the Newcastle fans, since his arrival a year ago from Marseilles, and he was certainly looking forward to the derby game at Sunderland on Saturday.
“I know how big this game is to the supporters, not only for the fans who want us to win, but also for me personally.”
“I would have been playing against one of my best friends in the game in Djibril Cisse. Fingers crossed, the decision will be overturned.”
It doesn’t look like that decision will be overtunred, but the last say on all of this will be from the FA, but at most we expect Beye to miss just the one game, albeit the derby game at Sunderland.
Our next game after that is next Tuesday, October 28th against West Brom at home, and we must take all 3 points from that game.
