Mathieu Debuchy, Newcastle’s French International right back, who returned to the side on Sunday, after recovering from a hamstring injury, has come out and said the Newcastle players are hurting as much as the fans, after Sunday’s disastrous result.
Mathieu Debuchy – we’ll fight to the end
Debuchy has said the Newcastle players were devastated after the 3-0 loss to local rivals Sunderland – well we’d be surprised if they weren’t.
I’m only just recovering some feeling in my body, after being completely numbed by the result. 🙁
This is what Mathieu said in the Daily Mirror today:
“I can understand that it’s very difficult for the supporters, but it’s also very difficult for us to take a defeat like that.”
“But I just want to tell them that we really need their support, it’s important for us so I hope they’ll stay with us – they’re a really important part of the club and for us.”
“I want to let them know we’re going to fight until the end.” “Quite simply, the manager was disappointed – with the result and the manner of the defeat.”
“He said we need to get out there and work harder and make sure we get the results we need.” “We don’t have a choice but to get on with it.”
“We’ve got some important matches coming up and that starts next weekend. We need to get to work and make sure we’re up for it and we’ll start next week.”
It was a devastating defeat on Sunday – no doubt about it, but the lads have five games left to make up for that terrible result.
And we need about 6 points to ensure we stay in the Premier League – which is where Newcastle belong.
Mathieu will soon learn that Newcastle fans are very forgiving – even though they go through hell and high water to support Newcastle, and certainly this has been a difficult season for the team in the Premier League.
But those are good words from our new French right back, who looks a great player in black and white stripes.
