It will not have gone unnoticed by Newcastle fans that Yohan Cabaye always seems to be following what’s going on at Newcastle, and this year there has been a lot going on at Newcastle and a lot of controversy – so not much change there. 😀
Yohan Cabaye – while he was at Newcastle
Yohan was keen to join Arsenal in the summer of last year and even went on strike to try to force through the move, and then when PSG came in for him last January, Newcastle agreed to the move and the French club paid £20M for him.
Yohan has been interviewed in France, and he had this to say about the current Newcastle situation:
“The manager is in trouble now, so I’m sad for him,” “Even when I was there, the manager showed us the way to play. It is the players who have to work harder.”
“At the time, I didn’t have any occasion to speak with Pardew or even call him,” “But if he texts me and wants to meet me in Paris, then it would be with pleasure.”
“He gave me everything when I arrived three years ago, so for me he is a good manager and he will stay the same in my mind.”
“The owner was fantastic with me, and my family as well. He told the truth to me all the time. He did what he said he would, so I cannot complain. My time at Newcastle was happy and I will never forget it.”
The Newcastle players have to take as much responsibility as the manager in this current situation and the only result we want tomorrow is a win, but that seems unlikely at best.
And it’s not very often you get somebody praising owner Mike Ashley, but Yohan Cabaye thinks he was great during his two and a half years on Tyneside.
Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye are two of the players who have left Newcastle this year and both could score goals, and the club haven’t really replaced them, and that’s part of the basis for the trouble at Newcastle at the moment.
18 defeats in the last 27 league games is not good. 🙁
