Sebastien Bassong is already having a better than expected season at Newcastle, as he has just secured the left back position in front of Jose Enrique.
Seb Bassong – has done very well so far at the club
The 22-year-old Frenchman, who has settled well on Tyneside, given all the disruptions that have happened since he signed, certainly didn’t let anybody down against Manchester City, with another solid and rather mature performance at left-back.
We were unlucky not to get all 3 points in that game, which we really needed, but Sebastien has now switched his attentions to the Tyne–Wear derby on Saturday, and he told nufc.co.uk:
“We maybe should have won on Monday, but that has gone now and we take a lot of spirit from the game,” “Now we look ahead to the Sunderland match. I know that it will be a very good game, but a very hard game because it’s a derby.”
“For us and for the fans, it will be the game of the year. So we will have to be very, very good and we will prepare for that.” “I’ve played in a lot of derbies in France but I don’t think it’s the same as in England, like Newcastle against Sunderland.”
“I think this derby could be very amazing and I want to play in it.”
Seb looks to be another excellent signing along with Argentines Coloccini and Gutierrez and young Danny Guthrie, so we may not have brought enough players in during the summer, but the quality and character of the players has turned out to be very good.
We expect Seb to start against Sunderland on Saturday.
