Sebastien Bassong has come out today and said that the rumors suggesting he wants to leave Newcastle in the January transfer window are just not true.
Seb Bassong – Frenchman is very happy on Tyneside
Bassong joined the Tyneside Premier League side following a successful trial during the summer, when he impressed then manager Kevin Keegan.
Bassong seems happy with Joe Kinnear’s contribution at the club, and thinks Joe should be given a chance to continue in charge of the team. Deb talked to Setanta Sports:
“The manager makes the squad feel more confident so we can say he has boosted the troops,” “Honestly, I have no idea whether he is going to stay until the end of the season or leave from one day to another, and all I can say is that he is doing a very good job.”
“You know things can change very quickly at this football club, and as far as managers are concerned it is all about results.” “We as players are aware of the club’s situation, but we are mentally ready to cope with the instability of the atmosphere at Newcastle United.”
“The club could be taken over from one day to another and you have to be focused on what you have to do yourself.” “I am not thinking of leaving the club, my priority is just playing more often.” “Whatever is happening around the club, I am fine here.”
The defeat on Sunday away at Fulham 2-1, has taken the sails out of Newcastle, who were on a good two game home winning streak, after also losing at Sunderland 2-1.
But poor defensive play cost us the game on Sunday, so it was in our own hands to have won that game.
“It broke our series despite there being room for earning points,” “But we are not dead even though we expected a third consecutive victory.”
Bassong is a good lad and seems to have been an excellent buy from Metz in the summer, and it’s good to hear the young ones coming out and pledging some kind of allegiance to the club, in such a tricky time for all concerned at Newcastle United.
