Newcastle United right-back Mathieu Debuchy had two very good games over the International break and scored a great goals against Australia, but now he has to get his head down and start playing consistently well for Newcastle.
Mathieu Debuchy – two good games for France
Mathieu had a terrible start to the season when he had a very poor game in the 4-0 dubbing at the Etihad Stadium, but since then he;s looked steady at the back for the Magpies.
Mathieu was pursued by Newcastle last year and he eventually signed for Newcastle for around £5.5M in early January from Lille.
Mathieu has told French radio channel RMC that he’s in his best form now:
“It’s true that I feel good. I had to get settled after my transfer to England. It’s never easy. These two internationals have done me good. Before that, I was on the bench. Now, I feel that I’m at my best.”
Debuchy is the regular right back at Newcastle and has played in all 7 Premier League games so far this season, and he will face a tough test on Saturday as Liverpool.
Maybe Mathieu can get a goal for Newcastle, and certainly last week this goal he scored for France was excellent, and he hit the ball beautifully.
