Great news today for our star player of last season, Sebastien Bassong.
Sebastien Bassong – call up by Cameroon
Cameroon have named Newcastle United center-back Sebastien Bassong in their squad for the World Cup qualifier against Morocco on June 7th, the national soccer federation said on Monday.
Paris-born Bassong, 22, is a former French Under-21 international but because he did not play a competitive match for the French juniors he is eligible for his parents’ home country Cameroon.
This could be what Newcastle need, because if he takes up the option to play for Cameroon, and plays just once, they will see how great he is, and he wouldn’t need t move ton Arsenal to get into the French side, and then, even in the Championship he can be playing in the World Cup next summer in South Africa.
This is potentially good news for Newcastle because they should offer the youngster massive wages (but not too much) to keep this lad on Tyneside, and we’re sure that’s one specific item Alan wants to discuss with owner Mike Ashley – he wants them to persuade Bassong to stay.
