Our best player at Newcastle this season, without much doubt, has been our young 22 year French center-back Sebastien Bassong.
Seb Bassong – Newcastle’s best player this season
And Sebastien is not only playing well right now, when it matters, but he also has a tremendous attitude, and whatever happens come the summer, we have to hope we can keep this lad at Newcastle United.
And Bassong has come out today and attempted to give the Newcastle supporters some renewed hope, when he told the Evening Chronicle:
“We’re very disappointed about the Spurs result.” “We didn’t do enough to get the result we wanted.”
“The situation is starting to get very hard for us, but we just have to be ready for the next game.” “I think we can still win this fight – we have to.”
“Everyone believes that we can do it.”
The Chronicle is reporting that Bassong has refused to sign a new contract, offered to him by the club, as he probably wants to see which other bigger clubs may be interested in him during the summer.
We have to hope we can keep Bassong at the club, but it’s hardly been a season where the players have liked what’s gone on behind the scenes, and the fact we have had four different managers this season, Bassong’s very first at the Tyneside club.
We hope he stays but we wouldn’t blame him if he wanted to move onto a bigger club, like Arsenal.
The Frenchman added:
“Newcastle means a lot to me, and I don’t want the club to go down in my first season.”
“They gave me a great opportunity in the Premier League, so it’s very, very important for me to help Newcastle stay in the league.”
If we do go down we hardly deserve to keep some of our better players who have done the job for us this season. But come to think of it, there are not too many of those, but Bassong is definitely one of them.
