News in the Evening Chronicle today that Demba Ba in fact will not be fined for giving that interview to Canal+ recently, in which he said Arsenal was an attractive club, and that he didn’t much like the way Newcastle were playing high balls into the box these days.
Demba Ba – after scoring against Manchester City
The truth seems to be that Demba Ba didn’t break any rules at all at Newcastle, and therefore there is no basis on which to give him a fine.
Demba Ba is immersed a bit in controversy at the moment, since most of us cannot believe he would walk away from a Newcastle side in dire straights at the moment, but walk away he may do – and some of his comments of late even seem to be setting things up that he could leave Newcastle next month.
It’s hard to know what Ba really thinks – but his agents are very clear by their actions – they want their client to move to a big club for a massive wage – thereby maximizing the money they will make out of the deal.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens – we sincerely hope he stays on Tyneside.
The Senegal striker has scored 11 goals in 19 appearances for Newcastle this season, and has 27 goals in 55 appearances for the Magpies – a simply fantastic record.
