Excellent news today from the Newcastle United club that Senegal International Habib Beye has returned to full training this morning.
Habib Beye – has returned to full training – great news!
And the expectation is that he can return for our next home game against Arsenal a week tomorrow.
Habib suffered ankle ligament damage at Wigan on Boxing Day, after a ridiculous tackle by 20 year-old Wigan midfielder Cattermole, for which the former Middlesbrough player is yet to apologize for.
Newcastle fans will remember that this player also put Joey Barton out of action in our home game against Wigan last November 15th, with another horrendous tackle, for which he received another yellow card.
But the good news coming out of Newcastle United’s training ground this morning is that Beye, a firm fan favorite on Tyneside, because of his excellent play and never-say-die attitude, is now back in full training.
Coach Chris Hughton said this morning:
“Habib is back in full training which is a huge boost.”
“He’s not only a good player but he’s also a very good character around the place who is extremely popular.”
“We will need people like Habib this season and we’re delighted to have him back.”
Newcastle fans needed some good news today, and it’s very good that Habib will be returning for the last 9 games of the season.
It looks like young local lad and England Under-21 captain Steven Taylor will lose his place, once Habib returns.
