Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has come out and said he thinks Newcastle have lost their “brain player” in Yohan Cabaye.
Hogo Lloris – Newcastle have lost their brain player
The French International goalkeeper has talked about the game on Wednesday night against Newcastle at St. James’ Park,in and has said that
Newcastle have lost their brain player in French Intenrational play-maker Yohan Cabaye
Yohan was sold to PSG for £20M last month, and Newcastle didn’t bring in a replacement for him – but money talks at Newcastle – if not the football.
And since the team revolved around the French play-maker, Newcastle have been weakened by their dealings in the January transfer market.
That could only happen at Newcastle.
And Newcastle fans would argue that Newcastle have not only lost their brain player – but have lost their brains – to do something quite that stupid last month – it;’ a pity the team is not a priority on Tyneside.
This is what Hugo Lloris told Spurs TV.
“They lost Cabaye, who was the ‘brain’ player of Newcastle.” “But they have some other good players, good French players.”
“So it will be a hard game, a tough game, but very exciting to play that kind of game.”
Lloris was in good form for Spurs yesterday when they beat Everton 1-0 yesterday at White Hart Lane, but they didn’t play particularly well in that game.
Newcastle have a number of injuries at the moment, but we could have Yoan Gouffran back on Wednesday night, and possibly Cheick Tiote and Papiss Cisse.
And with losing five of our last seven league games, and with four defeats on the trot at St. James’ Park in all competitions – we could really do with taking something out of this game.
