What the heck is going on at Newcastle with all the injuries our players keep picking up, and with just one game to go in Papiss Cisse’s seven game ban for spitting at Jonny Evans, John Carver has today revealed that Papiss is not ready to train with the team and is not 100%.
And it wouldn’t surprise us if he may have played his last game for Newcastle.
Papiss Cisse – may not play again this season!
Here is the very surprising and rather depressing news Carver gave out today:
“Papiss Cisse is working with the medical team and he is not 100%, he hasn’t joined in with us yet with any football and so we will just have to wait and see.”
“This is another chance for Riviere and he did very well last week, especially the first half, he ran out of steam as hadn’t had too much football.”
We really don’t know how and why our players are always injured and we were supposing Papiss Cisse had his feet up these last couple of months – what on earth goes on in training at Newcastle these days.
The season ends three weeks on Sunday so there’s not a lot of time if Papiss is indeed injured.
This is not good news for Newcastle’s survival prospects this season, and we should be getting more details from John Carver on what exactly is wrong with Papiss.
The Newcastle club in the summer need to shake things up from the top to the bottom, because injuries have been a bane to the side throughout the season – and why is that always the case?
And finally Newcastle are still currently top of the Premier League injury table with eight players out – but they don’t list Cisse as one of the players injured.
