Yohan Cabaye has given his first interview to the Newcastle web-site, since arriving yesterday and becoming Newcastle United’s first signing of the summer.
Yohan Cabaye – happy to join Newcastle
Yohan has been at Lille since 1998 and it’s the only club he has played for so far in his career, but of course that will soon chance once he starts playing for the Magpies.
The 25 year-old had this to say on the official Newcastle web site:
“I’m happy, I’m really happy. I’ve just seen the facilities and the magnificent stadium. The people are very welcoming so it’s really great to be here.”"I want to adapt to the rhythm here, which is a lot quicker (than in France), and it is one of the best leagues in the world.”
“I like being on the ball, playing with ball and making lots of passes. I am not a big dribbler, but I like unsettling the opposition with short or long passes. I like going for goal, but I am also a player who knows how to defend and make lots of effort to get the ball back.”
“I am very excited for the season ahead, especially when I see the stadium and the facilities here. I am excited to start training and to meet my new teammates.”
“I am really excited about discovering the Premier League, St. James’ Park and all of Newcastle’s fans, and hopefully this season will go as well as possible for the team and for me. I am really excited to wear this new shirt.”
Yohan seems a great guy and we have a feeling he will become a big fan favorite on Tyneside.
Certainly if he’s as good as we think he is, he could be a big success at Newcastle.
It’s just terrific to have Yohan on board.
