Yohan Cabaye was interviewed after the game and he talked about that free kick of his, and also on the Premier League debut of local lad Adam Campbell, and Yohan’s English was a bit choppy, and he admitted his English is not very good.
Yohan Cabaye - scoring from free kick yesterday
The goal yesterday was Yohan’s 11th goal for Newcastle in 62 appearances, and it came only a few minutes after Cheick Tiote had given away a rather stupid penalty,by lunging in on Jonathan Walters – just what the Stoke striker was hoping for.
This is what Yohan Cabaye said on nufcTV after the game:
“Fantasic – It was a very tough game, Stoke came here with a nice shape, a nice unit, 4-4-2.” “It was very difficult for us to play but we won the game at the end – it was fantastic.”
“I love this kind of free-kick and I practice it loads at the training ground, that goal meant we stayed in the game. I’m happy for myself and the team.”
“No I couldn’t put much pace on the ball, that is why I wanted to move the ball but the referee didn’t want to.” ”The wall was so tall I couldn’t put much pace on the ball, I just had to try to hit the target.”
“The manager trusts me.” “My English isn’t very good to speak in the dressing room, I just want to lead the team on the pitch and I hope I am doing well.”
And finally Rob Scanlon asked the French International about 18 year-old Adam Campbell, who made his Premier League debut coming on after 87 minutes for Yoan Gouffran, and this is what Cabaye had to say:.
“He’s a young lad and he has a very good mentality and he wants to play for the club because he’s from Newcastle, and he has a big relationship with the crowd, and he will be working hard to keep in the team – and he can score goals for the team – so I very happy to see him on the pitch.”
Yohan needs to improve his English, especially if he is to be our new captain next season, should Colo leave in the summer, but come to think of it the Argentine’s English isn’t that good either.
But Yohan does his talking on the pitch , and he will keep doing that – his goals are just so beautiful to watch.
