Demba Ba has given an interview on YouTube last night, and in it he thanks the Newcastle fans for their support of him last season.
Demba Ba – thanks Newcastle fans
And we wonder if that’s a parting thank you because he is leaving the club, but it looks like Newcastle have no idea who is representing the player, and his move away from Newcastle could be complicate.
In the same way Newcastle have lost interest in FC Twente center-back Douglas many different representatives and their demands, then maybe other clubs will tire of having to deal with the many agents who say the represent the Senegal striker.
Demba Ba talked about last season, but didn’t delve into his situation this summer in the transfer market, with that now famous £7M release clause in his contract.
This is some of what he said:
“The season has been very good for the whole club, the whole city and for me personally I had a very good season.” “I scored 16 goals in half a season – plus we play in the Europa League next season so we’re very happy.”
“We were there at the end, fifth place and the Europa League – it’s amazing.” “These fans are just amazing. Some of the best fans I’ve seen so far and one of the best stadiums I’ve played in. I just want to thank them for the season.”
“The second half of the season was less prolific for me because I was put on the left wing. We won a lot of games like this and everybody was very happy,” he said. “I am very happy with the people I am playing with, with the national team and Newcastle.
“They are two groups of people I like being with outside of football. Yohan and Hatem are two people I like being with outside of football.”
Ba’s brother Hamady on his Twitter account, drew attention to the new video, and he is just one of the agents who have said they represent the Newcastle striker.
Here is the video, and Ba seems very complimentary to everything at Newcastle, and it’s a very good video as Demba Ba reflects on his first season at Newcastle – and hopefully not his last.
