Yohan Cabaye has still not seen too much first team action at PSG, since he was signed in January for about £20M from Newcastle United, and the Paris based club shortly will find out what punishment they will receive as one of the big spending clubs who have not met the UEFA Financial Fair Play Rules over the last three seasons.
Yohan Cabaye – PSG reserve so far
But Cabaye ii s still hoping that next season he will be able to be a starter for the team, and he had this to say to the French Press:
“I want to settle permanently in the team and I will work hard for it to happen. For me, next season will be very important.”
The 28-year-old has made 20 appearances for PSG so far with one goal, but of those only seven have been starts for the Paris side.
At least at the moment the three central midfield berths at PSG are held by Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi, and Yohan is hoping he can force his way into the side next season.
And to think he could have started every game for Newcastle this year, if only he had stayed – but it was not to be.
And it’s interesting that Manchester City and PSG are likely to be the Champions of their countries this season, while at the same time they will be punished by UEFA – because they have failed to meet the UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules over the last three seasons.
If the FFP is to mean anything at all, those punishments handed out by UEFA President Michel Platini need to be harsh – otherwise they will simply continue spending enormous sums of money (they don’t have) on their players – which is the only reason they have been successful over the last few years.
