The 70 year-old Montpellier Chairman Louis Nicollin has commented on the transfer of Remy Cabella to Newcastle United, which his son Laurent handled for the club, (Laurent id the President), but Louis’ comments on Newcastle have been worse – maybe he’s taken a shine to Newcastle? 😀
Louis Nicollin – Montpellier Chairman
This is what Louis has told Foot Mercato today:
“He wanted to go. I wasn’t happy, but I told him, ‘Congratulations’. ” “In England, there is Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, which are above Newcastle.”
“But Newcastle is a club with a lot of French. He likes them, so great.” “Personally, I would not go to Newcastle. But hey, I’ll see him when he plays against a club in London! “He has what he wants, fine, we’ll see.”
“But in any case, he has the ability to succeed in England, that’s for sure. “He is frail, but he’s hard to catch.” “It was not the €15M, but it is not far.”
The France midfielder flew in on Sunday to complete his move to Newcastle, and Cabella seemed delighted to join what he called one of the great clubs in England.
Montpellier initially wanted €16M (£12.8M) for Cabella, but there have been several reports that Newcastle got the French International for an up front payment of £7M.
It seems another excellent signing by Newcastle United, and this lad is a very good player, and we just have to hope he is strong enough to put up with the physical play in the Premier League.
