Good news this morning, as Papiss Cisse has said he just loves it at Newcastle, and wants to stay at the club for many years to come.
Papiss Cisse – after scoring at Chelsea – he looks pleased 😀
Almost all of Newcastle’s top stars are linked with big clubs, including Cisse himself, but it will take big big money to get Cisse out of Newcastle this summer, that’s for sure.
Cisse has scored a phenomenal 13 goals in just 14 appearances for Newcastle this year, since signing from SC Freiburg in January for around £8M.
And he has been a tremendous success at Newcastle, and that’s putting it very mildly, with some of the goals he’s scored being simply sensational.
Papiss is on duty for Senegal right now, but he took time out to say this to Sky Sports today:
“I am very happy in Newcastle and I want to stay there for many years.” “We were close to a Champions League position so next season hopefully we will qualify for that and everyone will taste the Champions League.” “I am looking forward to next season.”
The top striker missed a penalty for Senegal after just 10 minutes in their 3-1 win in the World Cup qualifying game against Liberia on Sunday, which they eventually won 3-1.
“I am disappointed to miss a penalty but the most important thing for us is winning the match.” “Next time I might score again. I am very upset for our fans, but everyone can miss a penalty.”
Papiss Cisse is captaining his country, and a supposed Newcastle striker target, Copenhagen 27 year-old striker Dame N’Doye, played alongside Cisse on Sunday, and scored Senegal’s second goal.
There may be one, or even two players leave Newcastle this summer, but not Papiss Cisse, that will really cause an uproar among Newcastle fans, and Mike Ashley isn’t quite that daft.
