Mathieu Debuchy has been interviewd today in the local press, and he freely admits last season was just not good enough for a team such as Newcastle United.
Mathieu Debuchy – it’s not been good enough
Mathieu has played well in some games since he arrived, and he’s also had some poor games, such as the 6-0 debacle against Liverpool at St. James’ Park, when he managed to get himself sent off in the second half, just to make things a little worse.
This is what the27-year-old Frenhc International had to say today:
“It’s not been good enough for a team such as Newcastle United to do what we did in the last campaign and everyone knows that.” “We will do better next time.” “There is a determination within the squad to improve next season. We want to do a lot better.”
“The Premier League is a very difficult league to play in, but by the same token it’s an interesting one as well.” “Why is the league difficult? It’s because every match is difficult and I do mean every single one.”
“You have some of the best players in the world in England right now, so the level in all games is of a really high standard.”“That is a challenge for me, but it’s a challenge I wanted, when I decided to join Newcastle United in the first place.”
“I have really enjoyed the first four, five or whatever months I’ve had here.” “It’s gone really well for me one and off the park.” “I thought Sunday was a decent performance to end the season with. We did OK and it’s just a pity we conceded the goal when we did.”
Debuchy has been called up, along with his pal Yohan Cabaye, by French manager Didier Deschamps for their two friendly games against Brazil and Uruguay in South America in June.
And since both Yohan and Mathieu played in the Euro 2012 last summer, it’s just a pity they couldn’t have a complete break this summer from football, with pre-season training due to start in early July.
