We had an article out yesterday on Yohan Cabaye’s dissatisfaction with his lot at PSG, where he finds it difficult to get many games at the Paris club, and at 28 years old he’s in the prime of his career, so it’s not really surprising that he’s frustrated to not be playing enough back in his country of birth.
Yohan Cabaye – while at Newcastle United
And selling Cabaye for about £20M last January is one of the things that has caused Newcastle United o basically collapse this year, and we are now 3rd bottom of the Premier League after our first seven league games – and the Frenchman still hasn’t been replaced on Tyneside. 🙁
Yohan is worried about his lack of starts at PSG, and today French journalist Daniel Riolo has weighed in on the situation, and criticized Laurent Blanc for buying Cabaye from Newcastle.
This is what he said o le10Sport:
“In the last transfer window, was it a good idea to buy Cabaye?” “They spent how much on Cabaye? Twenty million? What does he bring?
“I’m not saying he’s a bad player, instead Cabaye is a good player but is he is for PSG? Bah no! A guy like Leonardo would never have bought players like Cabaye or Aurier.”
Yohan still talks very fondly about his 30 months on Tyneside, and while it was a bit tongue in cheek when we suggested that Yohan could maybe come on loan to Newcastle in January, if he doesn’t get more playing time by then – that could be a possibility.
Yohan is probably questioning his move to PSG now, but it’s always a risk when you join a club bigger than Newcastle, and there are quite a few of those clubs nowadays.
They have better players, and it’s always a challenge to get games, however good you may be.
