Yohan Cabaye has been talking to the local press today, and he has reassured Newcastle fans that he has no plans of leaving Newcastle, after what has been a disastrous season for us in the Premier League – and after battling last season to be fourth top – we are battling this season to be 4th bottom and avoid relegation.
Yohan Cabaye – I’m very very happy to play for Newcastle
It’s not the right time to talk about what will happen in the summer until we reach safety, and hopefully we can advance that cause big time by winning at QPR on Sunday.
But that’s a difficult task for this Newcastle side, who have won only one game in the last seven – and have won only one game away all season – at Villa Park.
This is what the 20 times capped French International had to say:
“I have three years contract left and now my mind is just to save the club.” “We have two cup finals then it will be the holidays.”
“But I am at Newcastle. I don’t want to think about the future with two games left.” “I am very, very happy to play for this club and these fans.”
“We all made some mistakes at the start of the season.” “That’s why we are fighting for relegation.” “But if we learn from our mistakes, no problem.”
“We are only human. And we all make mistakes, but now is time to learn and prepare. We need to finish strongly and then prepare well for next season.”
“We have to be ready to fight and play and be ready again in the Premier League like we were last season.”“For me, Loic is a good player. He’s a good finisher. He’s a good striker and he’s quick.”
Loic Remy is a little bit of a worry for us on Sunday, because he looks an excellent striker, and it’s such a pity we missed out on him in January – but he’s already making noises about wanting to join Arsenal in the summer.
Newcastle need to survive in the Premier League first – and then build up our squad in the summer, and then go all out for a top six position next season, and forget about the disaster that was this season.
And we hope we still have Yohan Cabaye at the club.
Maybe he can get a goal for us on Sunday?
