We had hoped Yohan Cabaye would keep his head down at Newcastle this season, after he angered Newcastle fans by refusing to play for the team in the first few games of the season, something that was a huge mistake, and brought him criticism, even from Didier Deschamps, the French team manager.
Yohan Cabaye – in action last Saturday against Norwich
But Yohan has been quoted again on French radio station RTL, and the stuff that got wide coverage was that he missed playing in the Champions League, and he hinted he may leave Newcastle at the end of the season.
To be fair to Yohan, he has been in good form for Newcastle so far this season, which is starting to look like we may be able to finish fairly high up in the Premier League again.
And of course he was the best player on the field in one of Franc’es crucial games for years last week against Ukraine, when the French quite brilliantly came back from a first leg two goal deficit, and qualified for the World Cup in Brazil next summer.
But Yohan needs to stop giving these interviews where he intimates he may leave Newcastle, and the last thing we want to have is another circus over his transfer to another club – either in January or next summer.
Yohan made a huge mistake last August by his actions, and we just have to hope he keeps his head down, be careful what he says in interviews, continue to play well for Newcastle, and help us be a shock team in the Premier League for the second season in the last three.
Some would say we had been the shock side in all three of the last seasons, given our narrow escape from relegation last season. 🙁
