After Yohan Cabaye mentioned that he had missed the Champions League and intimated he may even want to leave Newcastle at the end of the season, one of his French midfield team mates has said today he likes things at Newcastle – the club, and City and the fans – to be exact.
Moussa Sissoko – in action at Tottenham
Moussa has been a starter ever since he was the last of five Frenchmen to arrive last January, and those five transfers by Newcastle are now starting to look very good.
Three of them – Mathieu Debuchy, Moussa and Yoan Gouffran starters very game, and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has played as a starter for the last several games, and young Massadio Haidara has had a few injury problems this season, but looks a very good left back at only 20 years old.
Moussa has talked to the local press today:
“I’m happy here.” “I like the club, the city and the fans.” “I think all the players are happy here at Newcastle.”
“When we play together, it’s easier.” “If we work hard every week, I think when the season finishes Newcastle could be in the top seven or eight.”
Moussa has been playing on the wings since he arrived in January, although at his former club Toulouse, he was a central midfielder.
The 6’2″ player is a powerhouse at Newcastle with those surging runs of his, although there are areas of his game he can and will improve on at Newcastle.
One of them is scoring goals, and he missed a golden chance for Newcastle in the first half last Saturday against Norwich, but there’s simply no doubt this lad has been a great acquisition for Newcastle, and he will only get better.
