We’ve been waiitng for Demba Ba to tweet about the Cisse transfer deal.
Papiss Cisse yesterday – Howay The Lads!!
And the Senegal striker has welcomed his Senegal team-mate to Newcastle, following an astonishing sequence of events yesterday, that saw Cisse join Newcastle in a stunning £9M deal.
Cisse and his agent Guido Nickolay jetted into Newcastle via a private jet then flew back once the signing and all the formalities were completed.
And this is the tweet Demba Ba sent out less than an hour ago about his new Newcastle team-mate:
“I think even when he sleeps, he thinks about the back of the net. Welcome to Papisto”
One of the interviews Cisse was able to get in before he left Newcastle was with Sky Sports, and he conducted the interview in French with a translator, so the lad will have to learn English – perhaps he can join Davide Santon (and Fab Coloccini?) in his English classes.
Papiss said he would be talking to Demba Ba all about the Newcastle club when he gets back to the Senegal training camp, and they will have plenty of time to do that over the next few weeks.
Cisse said he hadn’t talked to Demba Ba before he jetted into Newcastle, because everything had happened so very fast, but he hoped he could form a great partnership with Demba Ba on Tyneside.
Cisse said during the interview that he was a team player, and he was nothing without his team mates, and he hoped to show that to the Newcastle fans.
We’ll have to watch the Senegal games in the African Cup of Nations and see how our two strikers play together.
Their first game is on Saturday when Senegal will play Zambia.
