Demba Ba has said on his Twitter account today that he has no link at all with Armand Doorn, who claimed that he is one of Demba Ba’s management team.
Demba Ba – Newcastle’s new top striker in the number 19 shirt
We had reported earlier today that Doorn had made comments to the effect that Manchester United, among other clubs that included PSG, had expressed an interest in the Newcastle striker.
This is what the Senegal striker put on his Twitter account today about three hours ago:
“Really, I don’t know how desperate this “Armand Doorn” can be to talk like he’s my agent!!”
“He’s nothing for me. Stop lying and show respect.”
It may be of some interest to Newcastle fans that Demba had also previously posted this tweet to his Twitter account:
“You know what guys I can’t wait to be on sat and see nufc taking on qpr for a win! I hope they win every game until I come back!”
One little word of warning to the Senegal international – we’re not playing on Saturday – it’s a Sunday game now with a kick off time of 1:30 pm, and of course QPR appointed Mark Hughes as their new manager yesterday.
And the good news yesterday on Ba was that the Newcastle hierarchy were said to be “relaxed” about the goings on in the press over the release clause in Ba’s contract, so we have to assume from that that there’s just no way he will be leaving us in January.
We also hope that Mark Hughes doesn’t have too much of an impact on the QPR side before Sunday because this is one game we should be taking all three points from.
QPR are hoping to sing one new player before Sunday, and we can also expect QPR to play a very defensive game on Sunday, which is one good reason why we should be starting Ben Arfa.
Demba Ba certainly seems like a smashing lad, and we have to hope not only will we keep the striker on Tyneside this month, but he signs a new long term contract with Newcastle shortly, and he can then spearhead Newcastle’s attack on the top six next season.
Maybe we should make that this season?
Howay The Lads!!
